Season 1
4.0 out of 5 stars (14) IMDb 6.6/10

Meet the rugged treasure hunters who scour the bottom of the sea floor in a race to haul in as much gold as possible before the waters become too icy to dive. From a family who owns and operates an 80 foot barge, to the only female dredger in Nome, they put it all on the line. With gold's price at an all-time high, some will go home rich, and some will just go home.

For a fraction of the cost, people in home-made dredges are getting 100 - 1000 ounces of gold per season by dredging shallow waters off Nome Alaska. My first thought was: Why didn't Todd Hoffman get himself setup with a home-made dredge?

This show has all of the human drama that Gold rush has. I love it !!

This show has definitely got the makings of an entertaining gold-rich, gold-rush experience...and most of the characters are great people with generally normal highs and lows. Scott? I wanted to reach into the TV and slap the taste out of his mouth in episode 1, and want to lop his mouth off his neck - with his head still surrounding it by episode 5. I've never, in my life, seen such a complaining, stupid, nasty, ill-tempered, gross, crap boat-captain with such negative nonsense coming out-of-face person remain on a job anywhere, of any type, at any time. If I hadn't purchased the entire three series, I promise, I wouldn't watch another second of his rants, raves, and tirades. It's probably only because the film crew is there, he's alive as of episode 5 - not from the already mountainous dangers of the Bering Sea, but because he is SUCH a big-mouthed schmuck. He is seriously fortunate someone hasn't shut his mouth permanently. This show films four gold dredgers and their crews, and shares all their experiences with us, mostly fixing problems. What's so frustrating about it to us viewers, is the majority of all these problems could have been circumvented if they'd all simply done a critical check-list before going out, and again before attempting to go down to the ocean floor. Being in such a remote area, with so much on the line, it just seems like common sense - but these people make life-threatening and pocket-emptying mistakes from not checking their gear and ship regularly, and potentially deadly mistakes by not being moderately careful. Heck, I wouldn't live like that in Florida, much less Alaska, but watching these (only a few) jerks and men (who really should know better) making these idiotic mistakes is part of the allure of this program.Read more ›

I live in Alaska and thought I might enjoy it. I did not. The events and people may be real but the people are being paid and that means that they agree to have their lives exploited. That part is difficult to watch.

This was an interesting show. I chose this because I love Gold Rush and had heard of another Alaska Gold show. Wow, there is definetly a difference in the two programs. I gave this program 3 stars because at times I found myself really angry with the people and it was making my life miserable. If you enjoy watching a dumb _ _ _ screaming at the people that are trying to help you, then you'd like it. This program shows several different groups of people using a "diving" method of a what I'd call a "duck taped" piece of wood or metal "1/2 put together" crap boat. They dive down into the Bering Sea and use a powerful hose to suck up dirt, rocks and gold. I am impressed however with all the gold that they bring up versus the TV show Gold Rush. Some of these guys are getting amounts of gold in a DAY'S work, compared to the amount of all the gold that's found in ONE Season on Gold Rush. These are definetly desperate people that don't have any quams about trying to "get rich quick." This show films several groups of people; a father and son team, that are the only ones that actually have one of the nicest boats. they have an actual excavator on the boat to dig for gold and run it through their sluice boxes. This team seems to get the most gold, but with all their equipment they have, they apparently have a ton of debt to pay off first. Then you have this idiot guy who can not get along with anyone. At the end of the show, the man that fronted the boat and equipment for this guy ends up FINALLY firing him and they actually get into a fight on the last show. The others are a young man and women, the women of which doesn't know much about diving and freaks out every time, obviously not getting much work done.Read more ›

But wish it had more mining content, less idiotic bickering dramatics. The prevailing recipe for all of these types shows seems to be just that. Pairing interesting content with dysfunctional people bores watchers interested in the subject. Gave up after two episodes.

They were busy setting up township in Season 1. I looked forward to season ll and watching them dredge for gold under the sea. I saw some people up on top of Pinnel Mountain in Globe, Arizona do some dredging and I have seen several movies about dredging. It's very interesting.

Bering Sea Gold Season 1 I Love adventure reality--gold, diamonds, minerals. Will watch again first chance I get. I plod along at an unrewarding job, the idea that you could go to work broke and come home rich really catches my imagination.
