Shark Week: A Rigorous and Couchless Itinerary

TEXT SIZE:

A A A

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.

"Sharks are jerks"?! Seriously? How incredibly ignorant and disappoint­ing.
You have a greater chance of getting killed on the freeway than by a shark.
Sharks are vital to the health of the oceans, which in turn keep us healthy as well.
We should be afraid for sharks, not of them. Sharks need us now more than ever,
and we need them too. Please watch the movie Sharkwater asap, before it's too late.
No Fin No Shark No Future period. Save Sharks Save The Oceans Save Ourselves.

FYI they're most commonly known as Sand Tiger Sharks in the US
