Storyline

Professional salvage divers Larry and Drake (later replaced by Mike) made their livings braving the dangers of the deep recovering sunken wrecks off the Southern California coast. Frequently, these assignments brought them into conflict with more human dangers from people who wanted to reach the wrecks first, or who had a vested interest in seeing that what had been sent to the bottom stayed there. Midway through the program's run, the divers moved their shop to Malibu, and name of the show became "Malibu Run". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The Underwater World Adventure
30 November 2004 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

The Auanauts was a great introduction to scuba Diving and adventure. The action, the Music, the logo in the title. I was caught the excitement in the underwater world. As a kid I grow in the world of television Heros, The Aquanauts was that TV show that really excited me. First came Sea Hunt, then came the Aquanauts. Two scuba divers, Drake Andrews and Larry Lahr, each week Diving in the underwater world of adventure. Keith Larson lift the show due to health reason, introducing Ron Ely as Mike Madison. The location of the Aquanaunt shop was, Malibu, Ca. I was lucky enough to pick up the comic book, and the pocket book. I spotted the game board of the series. Years later, I pick up the game board based on the TV Series. This all came out to be my introduction to the world of POP COLLECTABLES. To all baby Boomers, let's hope they bring out the series on DVD. Let me here your comments about the great TV show from the 1960s.
