Flipper summons Ricks (Brian Kelly), Sandy (Luke Halpin), and Bud (Tommy Norden) to save his new friend, a rare albino dolphin, from capture by Joe Morrison (as Jed Harvey). Ricks stops Mr. Morrison from netting the white dolphin, but he is still worried about the rare albino's safety - if the dolphin leaves Coral Key's cove, he could be legally trapped by Morrison, or another thug. Ricks decides to contact Dan White (as Captain Bender) for help; and, the two men go out to search for the white dolphin. Meanwhile, Morrison lures Bud to his boat, hoping the boy will lead him to the dolphins.
The white dolphin is a great visual. In this episode, Flipper is revealed as having recently been a father - an event which should have made a much, MUCH better story than the one delivered. Morrison is a memorable guest star; but, he is far too likable a villain.
