In the summer of 1995 Dive Bahamas received a makeover. It became the home to the feature film “Flipper” starring Elija Wood and Paul Hogan. Through the magic of Hollywood, a quaint dive operation, has been transformed in to a Bahamian fishing village complete with school, general store, fish market, and restaurant.
So right away, let’s dispel three myths about the appearance of the dive shop:
No fisherman were moved out of their homes so that the dive shop could move in. The shacks were built as part of the movie set.
The entire set was built in the summer of 1996 out of brand new pressure treated lumber. After construction the special effects crews came in with their tricks and literally overnight cracked and aged all of the finishes.
Yes – it still is a working movie set.
Not only have we shot a number of documentaries and television news stories from the set – but Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA still retains the rights to use the set again for a sequel to the film if they decide to make one.
