Shark Week 2018 Meets The Sharks

The business tycoons aka “sharks” who circle eager entrepreneurs on ABC’s reality competition series are about to swim with the large fishies who bear the same moniker during one of the specials set for Shark Week 2018.

The addition to Discovery’s lineup, appropriately titled “Shark Tank Meets Shark Week,” will star “Shark Tank” regulars Mark Cuban, Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Daymond John. (Sorry, no Lori Greiner.)

Shark Tank Stars and Conservation?

The official logline for “Shark Tank Meets Shark Week”: For the very first time, Shark Week brings together two of the most dynamic franchises on television in a shark vs. shark matchup to create “Shark Tank Meets Shark Week.”

This time, there’s a $50,000 donation on the line for a desperately needed shark-saving cause. In true “Shark Tank” style, Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Daymond John, and Kevin O’Leary get out of the tank and into the water. The Sharks are each paired with an oceanic organization to uncover the issues they’re facing and they’ll discover threats of habitat destruction, overfishing, by catch and more.

Shark Week Cage Diving at Guadalupe

America’s Shark Boat specializes in taking non certified divers, or first time shark divers, into the exciting world of great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) at Guadalupe Island to meet the stars of shark week. Shark dive with us and discover hands on shark research and shark conservation at Guadalupe.

Shark Diving For Everyone is our commitment to showcase the incredible world of white sharks with a combination of 18 years of cage diving experience, a cage system designed exclusively for non divers, top notch shark staff and cage diving crews with years of hands on shark experience.

We have been cage diving and naming many of the white sharks you’ll be diving with this year. From the incredible 19+ foot Deep Blue, most likely the largest great white shark in the Pacific, to many of our regular white sharks like Scarboard, Lucy, and Mau. These amazing animals have become more than just whites sharks to us as we encounter them year after year – we met Scarboard 16 years ago – they have become our sharky friends. Let’s dive!
