The Raft is a reality show from National Geographic that premiered on May 27, 2015. It follows four individuals as they attempt to survive for 60 days on a small inflatable raft in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The show features Janeshia Adams-Ginyard, a stunt performer and actress, and Mocean Melvin, a marine biologist and survivalist. They are joined by two other participants, Laura James and Steven Schwankert, both journalists with experience in the outdoors.

The four contestants are dropped off on the raft with only a limited amount of supplies, including food, water, and fishing gear. They must rely on their skills and ingenuity to catch fish, collect rainwater, and navigate through the treacherous waters of the Pacific.

Throughout the show, the contestants face a wide range of challenges, from extreme weather conditions to unexpected equipment failures. They must also deal with the psychological toll of isolation, boredom, and fear as they are completely cut off from the outside world.

The Raft is a fascinating look at what it takes to survive in one of the most hostile environments on Earth. The show provides an intimate look at the mental and physical struggles of the contestants as they push themselves to the limit in order to stay alive.

One thing that sets The Raft apart from other survival shows is its emphasis on teamwork. The contestants must work together in order to stay safe and maintain their sanity in the face of adversity. This often means putting aside personal differences and working towards a common goal.

The show also highlights the importance of preparation and planning when it comes to survival. The contestants must be constantly vigilant and ready for anything, whether it's a storm on the horizon or an unexpected encounter with a shark.

Overall, The Raft is an gripping and informative show that offers a unique glimpse into the world of survival. It's a must-watch for anyone who is interested in the outdoors, or who just wants to see what it takes to survive in the most extreme conditions imaginable.

The Raft is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (6 episodes). The series first aired on April 5, 2015.
