Well, Mr. Treece, a friend of ours was doing some diving around here about a month ago, and he found a Spanish coin, that was dated 1714, and he told us to talk to you. Romer Treece: Look it up in the Hamilton Library. David Sanders: Yeah, we did, we looked it up in the library and we talked to the librarian, and she said for us to come out here and talk to you 'cause you'd help us.

- The shipwreck featured in the movie is actually the RMS Rhone, which sank in 1867 off the coast of Salt Island in the British Virgin Islands. The ship broke into two pieces during the sinking. This movie was filmed at the bow section of the ship located about 75 feet underwater.
In the beginning of the movie while Gail is diving, she reaches under a part of the shipwreck and gets her arm yanked by the giant green moray, which causes her to scream in pain. In real life, her stunt-double, Jackie Kilbride, dislocated her shoulder doing this scene. A diver was told to pull the stick attached to her wrist from inside the wreck. When the stick appeared he pulled with all his might (as instructed). The scene was done in one take with multiple cameras as there was no chance (or need) for repeating it.
Author Peter Benchley can be briefly glimpsed as one of the U-boat shipmates in the prologue of the longer version of the film. The roles of the young Treece and Coffin were played by the sons of Robert Shaw and Eli Wallach.
