HI, You gave Changing Tides a one star rating. Was that a mistake? Your review seemed to be very positive. Thanks for the clarification, Marie

We are passengers on the Windstar and arriving at 8:30 on the 28th of January. We are both seniors and interested in NOT being on a huge tour. Birding and good snorkeling are activities we like. I am agile while my friend is less agile. What can you recommend as we have almost 12 hours in port?
