Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Oceanquest was a short-term TV documentary series, originally telecast on five consecutive Sunday evenings beginning August 18, 1985. Former Miss Universe and future Baywatch star Shawn Weatherly was featured as "herself," a novice deep-sea diver. Accompanied by undersea cinematographer Al Giddings, Weatherly signed on with a group of professional divers for what the TV Guide ads described as "the challenge of a lifetime." In Part One of Oceanquest, Weatherly takes her first plunge off the Australian coast. She and Giddings then observe at a not-so-safe distance the everyday activities of the Great White shark.
