Shark Bites: Adventures in Shark Week

Shark Bites: Adventures in Shark Week was one of the best new Shark Week episodes I've seen! Craig, at first seemed all talk, and when it came time to dive with the sharks he was understandably nervous. The dive instructors and producers assured him it was all safe and fine but hello!, he's no fool, he's been watching Shark Week for years, people get bit and it's bad! However, after meeting with various people, he nervous but ready. You can see that he's scared down there with those sharks, especially as one zips past his face...wow! And yet, he goes down again, this time to feed them! And he's fine, he smiles, he even pets a shark in tonic. The best part (other than the funny lines) when he surfaces after feeding them and says, “That was fantastic. They are so beautiful. They are fantastic. Oh, they are so nice. They’re like really big dogs, aren’t they?” 

So what did we learn? An average guy, who knows very little about diving, and very little about sharks (except what we all have learned from watching SW) was perfectly safe and fine. As long as we treat them with respect and are careful (follow the rules of shark week) we have nothing to fear from them.

Check out all of Craig's clips from Shark Bites: Adventures in Shark Week, or better yet catch the whole show when it replays on the 7th at 3pm est.
