It was in 1951,when he began His trips to explore the ocean ,on the RV Calypso -a former WWII, British Royal Navy minesweeper. Converted into a research vessel . Being well equipped with a mobile laboratory for underwater field research. - for its time.

His films and television series, "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau"[ the TV show] ,was no less than Awesome.I, as perhaps Millions of people followed Cousteau with his crew .Traversing the World, In the Exploring of marine life and their habitats. A New and wonderful Adventure every time .

Though, towards the end, of "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau". when crew hands changed --shall I say--, As so with the films . That Magic '' That was, Jacques Cousteau and The Calypso .
