Stingray Season Has Started EarlyStingray season has started early this year. Three people were stung on Clearwater Beach on April 24th. Stingray season started in Sand Key last week, and the stingrays are migrating north to Clearwater Beach. Purple warning flags warn of the danger of stingrays in area waters, are up and will continue to stay up.
It is important for all beachgoers to do the "stingray shuffle" when entering beach waters. By shuffling your feet in the sand, you will scare off any stingrays that might be around.

If you do get stung, see a lifeguard. Those who get stung will be treated by the lifeguard, and then they will be transported to the nearest fire station for monitoring. Stingray season lasts through the summer.
