The fourth season of the Australian drama Sea Patrol began airing as Sea Patrol 4: The Right Stuff on 15 April 2010. Most regular cast members have returned.
2Dads gets left behind on a reef dive by a charter boat, prompting an urgent search, but when the severed leg of his dive buddy is recovered the assumption is that they have both been killed by a shark attack.
Charge, who faked a cold to avoid going on the dive, has doubts about the theory – Shark Attacks are extremely rare in the area and the damage to the leg does not match with bite marks. His guilt and conspiracy theories begin to wear on the rest of the crew. However, his persistence pays off, leading to the discovery of drug money on a North Korean freighter.
2Dads is finally located on a cay far away from the search zone given by the charter company, and is able to explain that the charter boat was making the drug pickup, and he managed to steal the stash and escape underwater, but his dive buddy was not so lucky and they killed her. The drug runners are apprehended after a shootout on the freighter.
