Shark Week is coming….are you ready?
I’m scared of the ocean but for some reason I’m fascinated with sharks and love watching shark shows and so do my kiddos. This year, shark week kicks off on July 5th.
To get everyone ready, I put together a list of shark inspired shows that you can stream right now on Netflix. Just beware, not all of these are “kid-friendly”. To be safe, I suggest screening the show first before allowing your kids to watch it.
When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, nature’s deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air as thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace.
A freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.
3. Shark Week
A group of complete strangers find themselves isolated by a wealthy madman on his island compound.
4. Open Water
Based on the true story of two scuba divers accidentally stranded in shark infested waters after their tour boat has left.
Search for the Great Sharks” takes viewers on a round-the-globe expedition to encounter the most notorious creature of the sea. From the coast of California to the remote reefs off Western Australia, the film pursues blue sharks, whale sharks, and the most-well-known of all, the white shark.
The Mediterranean Sea, which is almost completely landlocked, was once home to a thriving kingdom of sharks. Today, where they went remains a mystery.
7. The Reef
On the beautiful but dangerous waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, ship delivery man Luke and four friends chart a yacht to its new owner. Along the way, their ship is torn open by sharp rocks and begins to sink, leaving the passengers with a terrifying choice: stay on board with slim hope of rescue, or swim twelve miles to the nearest island through shark-infested waters.
And watching a show is always best when munching on a delicious snack. Try carving a Watermelon Shark. I’m telling you, if I can do….so can you!
Check out these fun ways to celebrate Shark Week with the family.
