Having read about rough seas recently affecting the beach at CTI and bringing out the red flags I am curious. Can I still swim out to Tower Isle if I'd like? I know the boat may not be running, but I am a very competent swimmer and may like to venture over there provided I cant get a boat ride.
Also, I read that historically couples looking for A/N sunbathing may be able to get a lift to CSS if Tower Isle is closed. What is the protocol for that? 2 consecutive days of Tower Isle being closed? More?
Not if they have the red flags out. It's choppy. I'm a great swimmer and I wouldn't do it. We saw someone try on one day and the guys in the water sports hut flagged her back. Just ask the guys first...if they say no, remember it's a place they are much more familiar with and it is for your own safety. You are able to visit the other resort if you are a repeater...can't remember if they let all guests do that now. But regardless you have to sign up as they only allow so many a day.
We were there in early February and sometimes it would be open in the morning and they would close it by the end of the day. We were there 5 days and I think it was actually only closed 1 whole day during our visit.
