Daryl Galipeau from "Bering Sea Gold" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series. He is a technical advisor on the Wild Ranger dredging vessel.

Daryl Galipeau has been dredging for gold since 1980, sometimes with terrible results. He comes from a family of miners; even his grandfather moved to Idaho during the Kellog silver strike. Last year, Vern Adkinson asked him to be the captain of the Wild Ranger before hiring Scott, but Daryl turned him down to run his own dredge: The Eureka. The Eureka sunk in spectacular fashion last year, causing a spectacle on Front Street in downtown Nome, and costing Daryl $200,000, and what he estimates to be 75 ounces of gold.

Now without a rig of his own, Daryl is forced to work on other dredges. Vern has brought him in this year to be the Wild Ranger's "technical expert." Affable, Daryl will be the first to tell you he's a technical expert who has sunk two dredges in the last two years. He's hoping to get around 150 ounces this year between the Wild Ranger and the other boats on which he's working.
