Mike Nelson is a S.C.U.B.A. diver in the days when it was still very new. He works alone, and the plot was 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

Gee I miss Sea Hunt. I probably started watching and remembering it when I was eight or nine years old. By that time it was already four or five years in re-run. I can't remember any specific episodes but, I do have very fond memories of Mike Nelson and every shows promise of adventure with a pleasant finale. No tremendous explosions or unrealistic battle scenes, just a good solid yarn that always seemed like a recounting of a real event. The undersea photography, supported by background sounds of Mike's breathing through SCUBA gear, remains etched in my mind!
In a sense, today's Bay Watch, in a "cheesecake" sort of way carries on the tradition of simple honest story line, lack of violence and down-to-earth adventure telling. I'd still rather watch Sea Hunt, I must be getting old.
