Shark Week: A Rigorous and Couchless Itinerary



It's Shark Week in America and most of us will be celebrating in the traditional fashion, lazing on the couch, beer in hand, flinching occasionally on behalf of a seal or hapless tuna. While this is a noble tradition and should be in no way criticized, there exists a more adventurous alternative.

Americans have many opportunities to get up close and personal with the wolves of the sea from the discomfort of outside their homes. From Long Island to San Diego, our coasts are, uncomfortably perhaps, dense with sharks so it is never too difficult to find one's way into fun-infested waters.

But seriously, be careful. Sharks are jerks.

For those ready to exchange channel surfing for real surf, we present an itinerary for a real American shark week.
