Plot Synopsis

ICEBERG HUNTERS is a reality series that follows three family members who venture into the treacherous waters of "Iceberg Alley" in the North Atlantic Ocean, where they wrangle and harvest the ice from the water and bring it back to land to sell to water bottling plants. Dale and Whyman Richards are brothers and crab fishermen who co-captain a small boat out of the tiny town of St. Anthony, Newfoundland, located in the heart of "Iceberg Alley." To make extra money, Dale and Whyman break up the large icebergs and harvest the smaller pieces, selling these "bergy bits" to water bottling plants. For this iceberg season, the backbreaking work of bringing icebergs aboard the boat is taking its toll on Dale and Whyman, and they need a third person to help out. Whyman brings on his city-dwelling son Travis as a greenhorn. Before they even leave the harbor, Travis learns that hunting icebergs will be no easy job -- prepping the boat is hard work and his dad has no tolerance for stupid questions. Once at sea, Dale prepares to shoot his rifle at the hugest icebergs in order to bring down the pieces they need, but they must battle fog and smaller icebergs that don't show up on radar and can easily sink a ship.
