This home movie shows Tim Kennedy and his friends scuba diving around an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on July 8, 1978. Taking the camera underwater, the divers swim around the makeshift reef and play with fish. Back on the beach, most likely in Port Aransas, Kennedy captures his friends using a fake shark fin to recreate a scene from Jaws.
