“The Summer of the Shark” has begun and it’s not your fathers shark week!
You can join Expedition New England’s Scott and Race Tucker as they team up to bring you eye to eye with the most amazing apex preditors on the planet: The Shark! It all starts this June when they journey to Montauk New York “only 23 miles from home in Connecticut an witness the senseless killing of sharks for prize money in the 27th annual Star Island Shark Tournament. Then on June 30 Scott teams up with Captain Charlie Donilon of Snappa Charters and leads a team of divers 40 miles off Pt. Judith Rhode Island on the annual Blue Shark encounter and go eye to eye with these misunderstood giants of the deep. In July and August Scott heads off to the Cape Cod region to film Great White Sharks from his Kayak while towing decoy seals as bait to create a special documentary about this oceanic wonder. Finally, to round off the project Scott and Race will be catching and releasing sand sharks found in Long Island Sound aboard Expedition New England’s 19′ center console fishing vessel “The Racer.” The actual species name is Smooth Dogfish and Spiny Dogfish
Expedition New England ranks #8 most popular series on public access television in the entire nation!
Scott Tucker is the producer, host and camera behind Expedition New England. He grew up in New England but “at a young age in the 1970′s” he had little appreciation for our tremendously diverse wildlife because everyone always talked about Africa, Australia and Costa Rica. Right now, New England is home to some of the most spectacular plant and animal life on the planet and we invite you to join Scott and his family “wife Ava, daughter Daphne and son Race” on any one of their 93 episodes since 2005. One day you will find yourself rescuing Spotted Salamanders as they attempt to breed and the next you’ll be looking Blue Sharks in the eye i “outside the cage” 40 miles off Pt. Judith RI.
In 2010 “after years of planning” Expedition Earth Productions Inc. was born. A federally recognized 501c3 that enables Expedition New England to accept tax exempt donations to help fund the mission of inspiring environmental protection with educational and entertaining wildlife documentaries.
But don’t box me in! Over the years at least once every year Scott heads off “outside of New England” to a place he has never explored! In 2012 it was the Galapagos Islands. Previous years landed him in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. If all goes well it looks like Africa is on the horizon for 2014 and China for 2015! Stay tuned.
