Chip Morton and Curley Jones are in New London making repairs on the diving bell's guidance system. At the same time a skirmish in the control room of the Seaview sails directly into a derelict mine ...
When the Earth is threatened by a burning Van Allen Radiation Belt, U.S. Navy Admiral Harriman Nelson plans to shoot a nuclear missile at the Belt, using his experimental atomic submarine, the Seaview.
Voyage chronicled the adventures of the world's first privately owned nuclear submarine, the SSRN Seaview. Designed by Admiral Harriman Nelson, she was a tool of oceanographic research for the Nelson Institute of Marine Research. Though the show is known for its "monster" episodes, many plots were veiled commentaries of what was happening in the news. Such plotlines as nuclear doomsday, pollution of natural resources, foreign threat, and theft of American technology are all still relevant today.Written by

Henry Kulky was chosen as a series regular in the role of Chief Curley Jones. The role was cut short when Kulky was stricken by a fatal heart attack in February 1965 that ended his life and career, which included over one hundred features and television episodes. See more »
Any time the Seaview dives below 600 feet, the sea should be completely dark. Visible light does not penetrate the ocean below that level. See more »
Seaview's job is never finished. As long as there are destructive forces in the world. As long as there are secrets of nature to be probed, believe me, there'll be work for us. On missions just as vital and as dangerous as this one.

I watched Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea on TV when Channel 4 screened it on Sunday afternoons in the early 1990's.
The first series was black and white and the remaining episodes were in colour. It is about the Seaview nuclear powered submarine and each episode had a different story, including aliens, monsters and espionage.
The series starred Richard Basehart and David Hedison and was directed by the great Irwin Allen. The flying sub used in this series was to appear in Allen's 1971 movie City Beneath the Sea.
It would be nice to see this series again and for it to be released on Video/DVD.
