Storyline

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 John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

The Sea Hunt theme music was recorded by several orchestras, including those of Buddy Morrow and Patrick Cowley. In every case the record label credited the composition to "Ray Llewellyn," a mysterious pseudonym believed by most researchers to belong to David Rose. An alternative theory is that "Llewellyn," who also provided the music to I Led 3 Lives (1953), Meet Corliss Archer (1954) and Highway Patrol (1955), was an umbrella pseudonym used by Rose and other composers at Ziv Productions who were working on low-budget or non-union projects.

Mike Nelson, a man's man.
15 May 1999 | by lousvrSee all my reviews

What a night. Perry Mason then Have Gun, Will Travel followed by Gunsmoke (when it was a half hour) and finally at 10:30PM came 'Sea Hunt' with its wonderful opening theme music and Mike's boat sailing off to a new adventure. Terrific.. Regardless of the story it was the lead character (played by Lloyd Bridges), strong, honest, sincere. A Man's Man and a Boy's Man. This brought on an interest in boats that lasted for years. Why they don't show on cable or make it available on video, no idea.. Too bad.
