Continuity mistake: When Fischer was quickly getting his clothes on to get to base after he spent the first night with his girlfriend, he put a shirt on, and then in the next shot he didn't have a shirt on and he put the same shirt on again.

Continuity mistake: When Kevin Costner arrives at the diving school, there is a board on the wall containing a list of base records where Costner's character owns all bar one. In a later scene at the swimming pool, Costner brings a board which lists the base records where Costner now owns them all.

Continuity mistake: When the new recruit and the teacher go into the water together, for a rescue, at one stage, one of them is going straight ahead to the cave, like he's supposed to, but the other one is heading right, which is completely wrong; but then, somehow, they're together again.

Trivia: During the scene in Kevin Costner's office after the bar brawl involving Ashton Kutcher and his Coast Guard buddy Hodges, the title of the newspaper from which Costner reads about Kutcher's car accident is "The Cedar Rapids Chronicle." Kutcher is actually from Cedar Rapids, Iowa (although the real name of the paper is the Cedar Rapids Gazette).
