Sea Wolf is a 2-part TV miniseries adapting the 1904 novel The Sea-Wolf, written by Jack London.


In a mishap, a young poetry critic Humphrey van Weyden is cast adrift in the open sea. He is picked up by a seal hunting schooner, but his miraculous escape turns into a brutal struggle for survival. The schooner is captained by 'Wolf' Larsen - an authoritarian and harsh captain.


The series was mostly shot in Halifax, Nova Scotia using the Halifax waterfront doubling as San Francisco with shipboard scenes filmed aboard the schooners Alabama, Silva and the museum ship CSS Acadia at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.[1]
