Watch Bering Sea Gold


Bering Sea Gold is a reality show on the Discovery Channel that shows the lives of crews dredging for gold on the floor of the Bering Sea. The show is filmed in Nome, Alaska and follows the crews as they search for gold during the short summer season. Each of the crews risks their lives daily dealing with the frigid conditions as they try to vacuum up the gold waiting for them. The crews featured on Bering Sea Gold are The Christine Rose, The Clark, The Sluicey and The Wild Ranger.

The Christine Rose, which was built in 2009, is the largest of the dredges on Bering Sea Gold. The ship is owned by Steve Pomrenke and his son Shawn Pomrenke and their frequent fights are a focus of the show.

Another of the dredges on Bering Sea Gold is The Clark, which was built in 2008 by Ezekial (Zeke) Tenhoff. Zeke is an experienced diver who brought along his friend Emily Riedel as his deckhand. Trouble erupts for the crew due to Emily's inexperience, as well as Zeke's attraction to her. An additional crew on Bering Sea Gold is The Sluicey. The Sluicey was built in 2010 and is the smallest dredge on the show. Owner Ian Foster and deckhand Scott Foster attempt to find gold, all the while being hindered by their ill prepared dredge.

The main source of tension on Bering Sea Gold comes from The Wild Ranger. Owner Vern Adkinson spent thousands of dollars converting the ship to a dredge, only to have his first season ruined by incorrectly run equipment and infighting on board between captain Scott Meisterheim and the rest of the crew.

Bering Sea Gold offers a fascinating glimpse in to the lives of modern day gold miners hoping to strike it rich.
