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

When the producer wanted Mike Nelson to wear a gray wetsuit, he had to have one specially ordered. Objecting to the high price, the producer bought a can of spray paint, sprayed it himself, and had two of the crew hold Lloyd Bridges (I)' arms up while the paint dried. When it did, Bridges couldn't put his arms down--the dried paint was too stiff. The producer wound up spending the extra money for a gray wetsuit anyway. See more »
Lloyd Bridges will always be Mike Nelson of Sea Hunt. I'm sorry but I just can't think of this late actor any other way. He did some comedy and was in several films and another TV series but this Scuba diving series of his was tops. His voice over narration really was unique and made the show what it was. It doesn't seem to be anywhere on any cable channel which is too bad.
