What should be an exciting - and profitable - underwater adventure turns into one of the most dangerous situations Doc has ever encountered. Two ex-cons are on a killing spree and when they come upon Doc and his friends, they figure they'll take whatever treasure the divers find and then let alligators consume the corpses. Little do they know, alligators are nowhere near the scariest creatures in the water.
