SEA HUNT FOREVER 2019 - RETURN TO FLORIDA'S SILVER SPRINGS

Fri Nov 02, 2018 8:19 pm

SHF LOGO.jpg

The Sea Hunt Forever divers are returning to Florida’s Silver Springs State Park the weekend of March 2-3, 2019 to put on another underwater show in conjunction with the Florida Springsfest celebration! Springsfest promotes preservation of the springs through awareness and stewardship and educates visitors about the importance of Florida's springs and preservation of its history. Part of the rich history of Silver Springs are the movies and television shows filmed there over many decades - think Tarzan, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and yes, Sea Hunt. More than half of the Sea Hunt TV show episodes starring Lloyd Bridges as Mike Nelson were filmed at Silver Springs from 1958 to 1961.

To help preserve and present the history of Silver Springs the divers will be acting out scenes from Sea Hunt using actual scripts from the show while being viewed by thousands of visitors on the Spring’s famous glass bottom boats. As historical re-enactors, only equipment that is historically accurate from face mask to flippers is being used. If a particular type or model of gear was not used in the original series, you won’t see it used at the show. What you will see at the show is underwater knife fights, bad guys being shot through and through by spearguns (complete with fake Hollywood-style blood packets), divers wrestling a giant anaconda underwater and sunken treasure being recovered.

While the cast and crew have already been selected to fill the limited number of slots available, everyone is invited to come down and see the show. Introduce yourself to one of the cast members and we will see if we can get you “back-stage” to see the Sea Hunt gear up close.

Renown Sea Hunt collector and historian Alec Peirce will be on hand with his fantastic collection of Sea Hunt memorabilia so be sure and stop by and talk to him.

Questions can be directed to SeaHuntForever2019@gmail.com

Hope to see everyone there!

Sea Hunt Forever has received several requests for "back stage passes." I'll repeat here what we've been telling folks. We ain't that sophisticated as to have actual passes. Just grab anyone wearing a double hose regulator and tell them you saw us on the VDH forum. We will be happy to show you around, show you the gear and introduce you to the diving cast members.

Sure you do.... that would be the restrooms.

I am sorry to miss this again, due to conflict in timing, but of course I am hoping all of you have a great time! :D
