What is Peat Taylor charging you? We are going to use him in October on the Century. Did you email him or call? Last I heard it was $25.00pp. Has this gone up?

I emailed him and he responded in a timely fashion. He is now charging $30USD for adults and $20USD for children under 12. We will be sailing on the Voyager of the Seas the week of October 27 and will be in Ocho Rios on October 30.

His tour includes Dunn's River Falls (his fee does not include admission to the park), a tour of the Jamaican countryside and Fern Gully. I understand that he will accommodate everyone's wishes. He will drop you off for shopping and/or beaches. He will arrange to pick you up to return you to the ship. His tour takes 4-5 hours. His website is:

or you can email him at:

Actually, according to the confirmation I got from him, the $30 fee DOES include the admission to Dunn's River Falls. We'll be there on the Century on September 16th.

We had his tour last Jan and he was so busy, he passed us off to an associate who IMHO did not do a great job at all.

I thought the fee was included also, but I read a review by "Dena" dated 8/4/02 and it does not sound like it was. She said they paid $10 to get in and $8 for locker rental, which you get $3 back when you return the key. So I'm not sure about the charge or not.

Just checked my confirmation, the fee of $30 pp and $20 per child is inclusive of admission to the falls.

There is a review under Celebrity Century (can't remember who wrote it, sorry!) that said they paid $10 to get it, and then they paid Peat $20 at the end of the tour. So have cash with you. Also, plan on tipping him. Not sure what constitutes a "good tip" though....

We have booked his tour as well for the week of 12/1 (Ocho Rios is our last stop on the Paradise). I hope we don't get a substitute as Bob did. We've booked well enough in advance and primarily because of his reputation on these message boards.

I hope that this answers your question. We were on the May 11, 2002 cruise to Ocho Rios on the Explorer and went on Peat's tour. Apparently the rate to get into Dunn's had recently gone up from $6 to $10 per person. As it turned out, Peat charged us $20 and had us pay our own admission to the falls. So the total fee was $30 (this doesnt include any cost inside the falls such as locker rental). This increase was supposed to take care of the "tips" for the falls guides but they still ask for money anyway. For a complete commentary on the tour you can read my May 25, 2002 Explorer review. Have a great time.
