“Great service and always a smile”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I contacted Dudley a month or so before our trip to accommodate a large group of us from our resort to an evening at Ricks cafe. Fast responses and kept in touch up to the day of our excursion. We had time to tour the "real" Negril, he gave us lots of history and local information, and stopped at the Red Dragon bar for a drink and jerk chicken snack. Safe, comfortable, reliable ride to and from Ricks. Highly recommend and hope to get back to Jamaica again to see Dudley again!

“Welcome Home!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Those are the first words out of Dudley's mouth upon greeting us at the airport. My wife and I travel to Jamaica every winter and for the past three years we have used Big Ship Tours for our airport transfers and sightseeing. Each time we have been greeted at the airport by Dudley, the proprietor. He always has cold Red Stripe and this year he also had homemade Rum Punch. My wife really liked the punch.

We really love Jamaica and enjoy seeing the sights off of the beaten path. This year we took a trip with John, who works for Dudley, into the hills outside of Negril to the Blue Hole. It is a natural pool of water that is in a cavern accessible only by jumping straight down 20 feet or so. I jumped and the water was cool and refreshing. There is a small hotel with a pool and bar on the premises It was a really laid back atmosphere. He drove us above Negril where the view of 7 mile beach is breathtaking. Try getting that with a tour bus.

Best of all, his rates for private tours are competitive with the larger group tours where you have no say where and when you stop. My wife and I highly recommend Big Ship Tours for all transportation needs when staying in Jamaica.

Yeah Mon!

“Absolutely" No problem, Mon", with Big Ship ”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Dudley was a big reason we had so much fun in Jamaica. Driving the roads in Jamaica are not an easy task if you're a" do it yourselfer" like me, ie, like to go when and where you want to by renting a vehicle at the airport .But this trip I decided to leave the driving to the local pros, one of which is Dudley with Big Ship tours. And I was really glad I did. We hired him both for airport transfers and a half day trip to Mayfield Falls.
He communicates with you before arriving, is patient when the plane is late arriving at the airport, drives carefully, and tells you so many things about the places you pass, where to go and what to avoid. You're safe,there's no getting lost, or late arriving. It's just more fun and relaxing. We will definitely use his services on future trips to the Negril area.
And thanks also go out to to Jermaine and David, who work for Dudley as excellent drivers. Respect!

“want to give Jerome a big thankyou”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Just wanted Jerome a big thank you for making our trip back to the airport fun and interesting. He is a safe, careful driver. The owner Dudley did well with hiring his crew.

Dudley took a group of us to the Mayfield waterfalls, he is AWESOME!! His company is safe and he takes good care of you!! The mayfield falls are awesome too, great excursion we got some awesome pics in the falls, definitely recommend it. Dudley took us for jerk chicken on the way back that was waayyyy better than anything we had at the resort we were staying at. If you want to have a safe but fun trip with a company that can be trusted, big ship is the way to go!!
