Is It Any Good?

The series showcases the competitive and dangerous work of Alaskan sea mining, as well as the mechanical methods that are used to do the work. It also highlights the fact that more people are turning to gold mining as a way of surviving tough economic times. But much of the drama comes from the relationships between the dredgers and their crew, rather than the actual gold haul.

Like the miners featured on Gold Rush, the sea miners here are driven both by greed as well as the need for survival. They are also willing to take very dangerous risks (like diving to the sea bottom with little or no training), for the sake of turning a profit. Nonetheless, the process is an interesting one to watch.
