Sea Nettles / Jelly Stings Report

Good Morning all! Arriving this Saturday for 2 weeks. Any reports on excessive sea nettle / jelly stings yet? Thanks.

We are here now. So far we haven't found it a problem, but we haven't been in the ocean that much. The rain has been more of a problem. Sigh.

We leave the day you arrive. The forecast looks much better for your vacation! Have a great time!

By the way, since my kids are so paranoid about jellies, I bought 2 products just in case: sea safe and wipe away. You can google them for info. The sea safe (also part sunscreen) appears to prevent or neutralize jellyfish stings and the wipe away kills the pain. I had to order them online.

Just got back from our week. Saw one dead jellyfish on the shore. Not the stinging kind, though. Didn't come across any while swimming.

On my nightly walks, I've seen a few moon or cannon ball jellies but not a lot of them.

We've been down since the 3rd and I haven't seen a jellyfish yet. My husband saw a dead cannonball jelly on the beach the first day. I think you're going to be good this year.

We were there July 20-27th. We did not have any troubles until Friday. We were not stung, but observed about 3 people get stung pretty badly.
