Storyline

While widowed Porter Ricks is away at school learning to be a park ranger, his teen-aged son, Sandy, under adult supervision from a neighbor, remains at the family home in the Florida Keys with his pet dolphin, Flipper. While Po (as Porter is called by most) is away, Sandy learns that the family home, built on state land, is being torn down to make way for a highway. In turn, Sandy would be sent to live with relatives, while Flipper would be sent to the seaquarium permanently. Not wanting to be separated from Flipper, Sandy, using his skiff, runs away with Flipper. A distraught Po returns home to look for his son. Meanwhile, the Hopewell family from Britain are vacationing in the area. Their sailboat is hijacked by three escaped convicts, who take the father, Halsey, hostage, and set the three Hopewell women - mother Julia, and teen-aged daughters Gwen and Penny - adrift, they who eventually land on the island where Sandy is hiding. Not wanting to be detected since he doesn't want to ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

On March 30, 1964 Luke Halpin appeared as a celebrity contestant on the long running show "To Tell The Truth" alongside two others young men pretending to be him. The four panelists ask questions of the three contestants to try and find the real Luke Halpin. Luke starred with the dolphin 'Mitzi' in the original "Flipper" movie and with 'Suzie' in "Flipper's New Adventure". He was asked which of the two dolphins he preferred and he answered Mitzi because she was more affectionate. See more »

Nicely acted dolphin adventure, not only for kids fun!
20 December 2000 | by vinnienhSee all my reviews

It is largely due to the participation of handsome Luke Halpin that this film drew my attention. Although Flipper the dolphin is well trained and does a good job it's also nice to see "Sandy Ricks" appear in a movie again.
