Your primary driver, Soloman Kerr, aka: "Sala"
is a native Jamaican born in Kingston and raised in
Soloman first began meeting travelers to Negril
as a young boy, when he and his father would cook on
Booby Cay Island for people traveling there on glass
bottom boats to enjoy a day of snorkeling and sunning.
Running a jerk stand, bartending, and doing archival
work at one of the all-inclusive hotels in Negril continued
to bring Sala into contact with tourists, and their
questions about where to go, what to see, and who to
meet finally led to the business he has today. For those
interested in all growing things of the earth and natural
bush medicines, Soloman is delighted to share what he
learned from his grandparents and will happily see that
your sense of sight, touch and smell experience, in
a "hands-on" way, some of nature's rich bounty.
Eltado Watson, aka: "Tado" or "David"
- is just one of Soloman's seven uncles, and he joined
the family team last year - a most welcome addition
to our company. David first began meeting visitors in
Negril when he sold crafts on the beach. Later, he bought
his first car and took some of those same returning
guests who had come back looking for him, out on private
tours. Driving visitors in and around Negril, and out
into the countryside for seventeen years now, he still
enjoys meeting new people and loves the fact that each
trip is never the same twice. Upbeat, full of energy,
David's advice to those coming to Jamaica: "Link
up with us, let us get you out and around to have a
good time and learn something new, even if you've been
here 5 or 6 times or more."
Sienna, a native Californian, first came to
Jamaica as a visitor 11 years ago. Fascinated by the
rich variety of the island, and impressed by the strength
and character of the Jamaican people, she returned multiple
times over the following years, traveling by local route
taxis, the old style "country buses", motorcycle
taxi and good old-fashioned walking in her quest to
investigate Jamaica's multi-layered charm. Jamaica is
now her "adopted home" and knows that "one
can never get bored in Jamaica, no day is ever the same
one day to the next" and that the positive and
uplifting Jamaican people are what will "hook you"
as much as the beautiful scenery and warm tropical weather
- and in combination these will bring you back over
and over and over again. "Master Calendar Keeper",
and helping with emails are her primary roles in the
company, and whenever possible, she loves to join a
tour so as to meet new visitors, returning friends,
and the enjoyments of the open road.
Robert, our "long distance specialist",
first started in the transportation business driving
a route taxi in Negril. When meeting visitors to the
town, his honesty and friendly manner, as well as safe
driving drew requests for longer trips outside the parish.
On returning home, these chance encounters led to his
name being passed on to other friends coming to Negril,
and this continued to spiral until he decided to drop
the route taxi work some years ago and specialize in
taking visitors all over the island, whether to Kingston,
Port Antonio, Ocho Rios, Mandeville or any other points
on the map. Robert loves meeting new people, and believes
strongly in being on time (if not early!) and being
someone people can depend on and trust.
