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

When Lloyd Bridges complained about the weight of his twin air tanks during topside re-takes, the Art Director designed twin tanks made of balsa wood and had them painted silver. Only in the earliest episodes is Bridges using real tanks for above-surface scenes. See more »

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.
