Do the stingray shuffle while at the beach this summerThe City of Clearwater would like to remind you to do the Stingray Shuffle. The peak of stingray season May through October, so when visiting the beach, please be aware that stingrays might be in the water. To make sure you don’t accidentally step on one and get stung, shuffle your feet, instead of walking through the water. This causes a disturbance in the sand that causes the stingrays to move away.

The Clearwater Beach lifeguard stations will fly a purple flag to indicate the possibility of dangerous marine life, such as stingrays. If a sting from a stingray does occur, see the beach lifeguard immediately for treatment.

For more information, call the water safety supervisor at (7270-462-6963.
