Remember to do the “Stingray Shuffle”
CLEARWATER - The Clearwater Marina Harbormaster’s Office says stingrays are back in area waters. Swimmers are reminded to do the “Stingray Shuffle” when entering the water. The shuffling feet create a disturbance that causes stingrays to move away. If a sting does occur, see a beach guard immediately for a hot pack treatment.
The peak of stingray season is May through October. For further information contact the Harbormaster’s Office at (727) 462-6954.
