Synopsis:
Carter Primus and a woman named Carla are
being attacked by two thugs, one of whom shoots at Primus. Police
sirens drive them off and Primus and Carla get on with their dinner
plans but he soon learns she's a woman needing help getting a
treasure of stolen gold off the sea floor of the South American coast
off the coast of Punta Del Este. She wants to retrieve it for the
good of her people and keep it away from the dictator Adolfo Ruiz.
Primus agrees to help. His aides Charlie Whitman and Toni aren't too
sure about it, but Primus nonetheless heads off to find the gold. He
dives into some dangerous waters filled with sharks and barracuda
which he drives off with a spear gun. Locating the wreck he comes
under attack by two divers hired by Ruiz to stop him and get the
gold. He fights them off but then Ruiz shoots a machine gun into the
water wounding his own men and driving the barracuda into a frenzy.
Primus saves the men, and is stranded below, but Charlie and Toni
show up in the nick of time and save the day. Synopsis by Dean Webb

Synopsis by Dean Webb
Professor John Wilmore, the man with both lungs and gills, called
upon to solve a problem for the Navy. It seems they use sea lions to
find and retrieve top secret deep sea devices designed to stop enemy
subs. The sea lions cannot it seems retrieve them 100% of the time
and the Navy can't find the problem. Wilmore descends and ultimately
finds it's the the fault of the signal and not the sea lions, solving
the Navy problem.

Synopsis by Dean Webb
opens
with Primus riding a motorbike across the beach dunes and coming
across a beautiful blonde painting seascapes. She complains that
she's being harrassed by three hoodlums (who look not unlike the gang
from Easy Rider in some respects). Primus himself finds trouble with
the trio who tell him to leave the area. He doesn't, instead uses his
plane to locate their shack. That night inflitrates the gang's shack
but is captured and it turns out his presence and that of the girl
threaten a drug smuggling operation. The next day the gang shoots at
Charlie Whitman and Toni and they leave the area, but then Primus
escapes and Charlie and Toni return and the drug runners are
captured.
