Shark Week Kicks Off August 1 with "Ultimate Air Jaws"
Television's Discovery Channel kicks off its annual week of shark programming with "Ultimate Air Jaws", a program featuring our very own Chris Fallows. Chris is the renowned shark photographer and conservationist who leads IA's shark adventures in False Bay, South Africa. Many know him as the man behind the popular shark shows "Air Jaws" and "Air Jaws 2" or as the author of "Great White: The Majesty of Sharks".
If you'd like to arrange a shark adventure with Chris in South Africa, or our team in San Francisco or Isla Guadalupe, let us know.
Our Love/Hate Relationship with Shark Week
If you'd like to dive with great white sharks in San Francisco this year, it's best you call us soon. "Shark Week" always sets off a shark dive buying frenzy and several of our weekend dates are already sold out.
It's hard to hate a week of TV shows that helps us make sales, but we can't love "Shark Week" either. Many of the shows wrongly make sharks out to be evil killing machines. For an interesting commentary on "Shark Week" and nature television shows in general, read this Huffington Post article.
Jump A Mountain - Skydive Everest
Join Wendy Smith and the rest of the incredible Everest Skydive team in Nepal this October for an unforgettable leap in front of the tallest mountain in the world. Jump from an altitude higher than Everest and land on one of the highest drop zones on the planet. No skydiving experience is required!
The cost of the Everest Skydive Adventure varies according to currency exchange rates but is approximately $32,500 for a multi-day adventure that includes pre-jump training, a high-altitude tandem jump, guided hikes, lodging, meals and more. Email us to learn more.
Let Hawke Teach You to Survive
If you've tuned in to watch the new Discovery Channel series "Man, Woman, Wild", you've seen Green Beret Mykel Hawke share tips for surviving in the wild. Week one in the Amazon showed Hawke and his wife making a shelter and cooking boa constrictor for dinner. Week two showed them in Botswana, boiling water in their disabled Jeep's radiator pan and feasting on wildebeest and crocodile.
You can complete an introductory survival course with Hawke in select cities across the US and Canada. The very first survival mission with Hawke is set for August 13-15 in San Diego, California. Longer, more intense training programs are also planned in Mexico, Panama, Columbia and Equador. For more information, visit our website or contact us at 800-644-7382.
Go Hollywood in a Fighter Jet
Think you can act like a real fighter pilot? It's not easy. Real fighter pilots don't scream or give up their breakfast when their jet performs a roll, loop or low-level maneuver.
Schedule a film shoot with our Hollywood Top Gun team and see for yourself if you've got the right stuff. We provide the movie cameras and line up your co-star, an ace Hollywood stunt pilot. We also provide you with a flight suit and helmet to wear during your flight. (In Hollywood, it's called "wardrobe".)
Fly the L-39 Albatross for a short movie, or make a longer movie by adding the M-26 Airwolf and MiG-15. Contact IA for more information.
