NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — What would you do if someone were to invite you to surf, deep-sea dive, white-water raft or engage in similar high-stakes outdoor endeavors… for the first time?
Outdoor enthusiasts and neophytes alike will be able to find out beginning March 7 when Season Two of “Finding Adventure” launches on the Very Local app, available to stream for free on all mobile, tablet and connected TV devices.
Host Kinga Philipps, ocean conservationist, thrill seeker and first ever female host of “Shark Week” travels to locations around the country, taking local residents along with her for “the coolest, most breathtaking and heart-pounding experiences.” Philipps serves as expert and mentor taking participants and viewers alike “out of their comfort zones” to experience incredible outdoor adventures right in their own backyards.
“Watching the personal transformations of the inspiring locals we’ve invited on the show is one of the most rewarding experiences we’ve had as creators.
