Are there stingers in the waters around Trincomalee ?

Talking to another guest at the hotel where we are staying in Sigiriya,I mentioned we are going to Nilivelli and Uppiveli to swim and he said there are stingers in the waters this time of year.

Some years back that happened in June yes but uptilnow not heard. Never completely predictable - e.g. this year the whales came there in April already while normally it starts June-July. Weather is changing ;-)
