Storyline

Mike Nelson is a Scuba Diver in the days when it was still very new. He works alone and the plot was always mostly carried through his voice over narrations. These gave the show a flavor of a radio program. Typical adventures were finding a downed satellite or sunken treasure. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

When the producer wanted Mike Nelson to wear a grey wetsuit, he had to have one specially ordered. Objecting to the high price, he bought a can of spray paint, sprayed it himself and had 2 of the crew hold Lloyd Bridges arms up while the paint dried. When it dried, Bridges couldn't put his arms down. The paint was too stiff. He paid the high price after all. See more »

Bring Back Sea Hunt!
3 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching this and I thought it was the best series they had at the time, even though I must have been watching the reruns because I was born in 1957. I could never get enough of it - I had to have seen all 155 episodes, I grew up on this and was always excited to watch! The conclusion was always exciting to find out what was found and the mystery was revealed. At age 50, I watch TCM to see if it will show the old reruns of Sea Hunt to this day! It made quite an impact in my life and I always wanted to be just like Mike Nelson - he was so cool! I am an avid Movie Classic viewer and this was the best acting, next to James Cagney, the most under-rated Classic Movie actor ever.

I wish they would bring Sea Hunt back so most of the young generation would understand what principals and morals are really like. Lloyd Bridges' sons truly did find what their father was really about! --A True Sea Hunt Fan
