Every summer, as the glacial ice melts around this frozen and isolated port, a handful of fortune seekers hunt for gold in the most unlikely of places: the bottom of the Bering Sea.
Tune in to this unique series that profiles the salty and eccentric characters who spend hours on the rocky, frigid ocean floor, hunting gold from custom built, sometimes barely seaworthy rigs. From the desperate to the diabolical, the Nome gold fleet takes on all comers, and the brutal Bering Sea does the rest.
With gold's price at an all-time high, some will go home rich and some will just go home
Tune in to Bering Sea Gold every Saturday at 10PM only on Discovery Channel.
