Pretty standard seafaring story that breaks no new ground and has no emotional highs or lows to hold the interest. Good guy (Cabot) loses his boat to the Bad guy (Gleckler) in a race in which Cabot stopped to rescue a shipwrecked sailor. He also loses his girlfriend (Wray) in the process. He tries to aid the sailor, who relates his tale of an island loaded with pearl-bearing oysters.
In the ensuing quest to find the island, Cabot's crew are beset by cannibals who capture Wray while Cabot is diving. Predictable events ensue before the couple are reunited and Gleckler and his crew are relegated to runner-up status. As stated, the picture is unremarkable and not noteworthy, except to fans of Fay Wray, who looks lovely. She has little to do but show fright and exasperation with Cabot. "The Sea God" lends credence to the belief that Director Abbott's best and most famous successes were on Broadway rather than Hollywood.
