Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie with the scene of the water skiers, the amount of boats on the water goes from hardly any, to suddenly being loads. (00:02:35 - 00:03:40)

Continuity mistake: When two divers emerge from the water, one pulls their goggles up onto their forehead and the other pulls his goggles down to round his neck. Then the divers and Mike start talking about 'no overtime', and between shots the goggles around the divers neck vanish. (00:07:30)

Continuity mistake: When Mike answers the call from Calvin the phone cord goes over his shoulder. When it cuts it's gone. (00:27:10)


Continuity mistake: When Mike has the harpoon pointed for the sharks dorsal fin, there is white rope wound around the length of the metal harpoon. In the shot just before he shots the harpoon, there isn't.

Continuity mistake: When the shark is chasing the water-skiers, you can see its fin is about 3 feet behind them, meaning its head must be underneath, if not in front of them. However, in the shot from under the water its viewpoint is shown as being behind them.

Continuity mistake: When Mike is in the water doing the welding on the tunnel patch he is wearing a full face mask with the rebreather attached at middle, but when he and Kay are swimming away and go into the door back to the control room after being chased by Jaws, he is wearing just a regular snorkel mask with the rebreather in his mouth.

Continuity mistake: The small shark shrinks a lot when it's brought into the enclosure. If it were its original size, it would have stuck halfway out of the tank.

Visible crew/equipment: After Calvin Bouchard makes the announcement to tourists visiting the Undersea Kingdom to evacuate, we see the tour guide lead the crowd through the tunnels. The green screen backdrop is still in the final cut. They forgot to add in the underwater effect.
