In conjunction with the upcoming premiere of River Monsters 6 on Discovery Channel, fans of angling guru Jeremy Wade will be able to catch him in action on 25 May, as he swims with Arapaimas, at the River Safari.

As part of Discovery Channel’s River Monsters Live In Asia tour, Jeremy will also be sharing stories of his adventures from the new season, encounters with monstrous freshwater beasts, tips on how to catch monster fish and last but not least, to meet his fans.

Jeremy will swim amongst giant trees with Arapaimas, manatees and other aquatic creatures at River Safari’s Amazon Flooded Forest.

His previous encounters with the Arapaima included his trip to Brazil in 2002, where he was painfully rammed right in the chest while attempting to net one.

In addition to seeing Jeremy in action, fans will also have the opportunity to explore River Safari which is home to monster fishes similar to those the extreme angler has gone head on with over the last five seasons of his series.

These include the Giant Freshwater Stingray, Mekong Catfish and the Goliath Tigerfish.

Fans will also come face-to-face with some of Amazon’s deadliest suspects featured in the upcoming River Monsters 6: the Red-bellied Piranha, Anaconda and Electric Eel.

The exclusive showcase at River Safari marks the final leg of the River Monsters Live In Asia tour following his visit to Jakarta (22 May) and Kuala Lumpur (24 May).

River Monsters 6 premieres on Tuesday, July 8 at 9pm on Discovery Channel (StarHub Channel 422).
