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>

I grew up on Sea Hunt
28 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think my family ever missed an episode of Sea Hunt! We all looked forward to seeing it every week. I remember that I wanted to experience all the adventures that Mike Nelson (wonderfully portrayed by Lloyd Bridges) and go off with him wherever he went. To heck with running off with the circus - I'd have run off with Mike Nelson! This was good stuff for boys to watch. I seem to recall that my mom liked it as well. PLEASE show this on some cable channel! I want to tape every episode.
