TORONTO (June 29, 2015)MIGHTY SHIPS is set to shove off for its epic eighth season, delivering an unparalleled stem-to-stern journey alongside the world’s most sophisticated vessels, premiering Sunday, July 19 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT exclusively on Discovery. The long-running Canadian mega-hit series, produced by Bell Media’s Exploration Production Inc. (EPI) in association with Discovery and seen in more than 150 territories around the world, uses stunning cinematography to capture the spectacular scale and innovation behind everything from luxurious cruise ships and cargo haulers to warships and oil drilling rigs, along with the navigational challenges of stormy seas and extreme weather.

Season 8 kicks off with twice the might, featuring all-new back-to-back episodes showcasing “Quantum of the Seas” – the world’s most deluxe cruise ship, boasting extreme sports facilities and an observation pod that takes guests to staggering, skyscraper heights. And battening down the hatches for the second episode of the evening, “Hawk” takes viewers aboard one of the world’s most powerful semi-submersible transports – a vessel that must actually sink before she swims.
