Beach In-Water Metal Detecting Gear

This gear is useful for in-water beach work. When at the beach and you want to do some underwater metal detecting, you need to add a few tools to your toolbox.

The most basic way to operate in the water at the beach is with a waterproof metal detector (at least the coil needs to be submersible to several feet), some headphones, a scoop, and a mesh bag to put items in.

If you plan to go beyond wading depth, you’ll need to consider getting some fins and either a snorkel or SCUBA gear (if you’re certified) depending on how deep you plan to detect. Also, a detector that’s fully submersible is necessary.
