Discovery Channel’s Shark Week  has sailed onto TV screens and we’re going along for the ride with free sharky things to do and a $100 Cold Stone gift card giveaway! Details at the end of this post.

The weeklong fest dedicated to one of the world’s most misunderstood marine animals, is the  longest-running programming event in history. Shark Week  returns this year with new features: Shark After Dark, Discovery’s first ever late-night live talk show, at 11 p.m. each evening during Shark Week and Shark Cam, a robot submarine that is used to track sharks giving viewers an unbelievable look at the life of a 17-foot Great White.  Click here for a full schedule of Shark Week programming.
