The television series is about a man who is doing research work with dolphins, trying to learn how they communicate and how or if they can be trained for different purposes. In episode one of season one, Doctor Keith "Bud" Ricks is using a machine that uses echo location technology that trains dolphins to pick up items located on the bottom of the ocean. Although Doctor Ricks tells his accountant, Goodwin, not to inform the Navy about their progress, however, Goodwin calls the Navy anyway.

The Navy sends a woman, Doctor Pamela Blondel, to help Doctor Ricks, and Goodwin informs Ricks that the Navy is willing to finance the work they are doing with dolphins. The woman, arrives with her son Mike, who is not interested in the research center where she will be working.

Mike releases the dolphin, which Doctor Ricks has been working with, not knowing that the dolphin has been raised in captivity since it was born and does not know how to survive in the wild areas of the seas.

When Mike finds out about the circumstances involving the dolphin, he tries to find it by himself. However, Mike gets his foot caught the deck of a mostly submerged boat, a dolphin that he has named Flipper comes to his rescue.

Flipper is a rogue dolphin that becomes a part of the research work the team is doing after he helps Mike get free of the submerged boat.

In episode two of the series Flipper finds a gold medallion that was on the floor of the sea near a sunken ship that contains a shipment of gold bullion.
