For combing beaches, your best friend is the BeachHunter 300, which ignores junk and detects treasure in and out of the water. The control box is detachable, and color-coded LEDs let you identify detected targets with just a glance.
Water and electronics usually don’t mix, but this detector is completely waterproof in depths up to 25 feet.
The specially designed 12” spider coil has extreme detection depth but is epoxy-filled so it has near neutral buoyancy: it won’t push away from the water or try to sink. Included Piezo headphones are also waterproof to guard against accidental drops.
Dual-frequency detection provides optimum results on the sand and in the water, while two search modes toggle between pinpointing and wide search. The detector’s three controls let you adjust threshold, sensitivity, and ground.

I like the simple way it works.I really like mine as well...Found a class ring at Mytrle Beach last year....I did get it back to the girl that lost it. She was a happy camper, she had just graduated from High School...Thank God.
It is very deep, hitting quarters 14 inches deep....I dug a little metal truck around 17 inches. Found close to 20 dollars in change, two cell phones, 8 match box cars.
Oh yes I dug a pair of sunglasses I know they were at least 18 inches...I think I hit them with my digger on one side messed them up...looked them up cost around 150.00 smack a- Roos. I'm sure someone hated they lost them.
Great machine as far as I'm concerned...I have the older model...!
Excellent beach hunter id works super fine on trash areasI have couple of months using beach hunter id 300 works so good on trash areas its show the good targets yellow and blue light. I all ready fine couple Gold & Silver rings and lot of coins. High recommend for those persons they are start on this joby.
Great UnitI'm working on my 3rd BeachHunter and it boils down to this. Ive tried numerous units over the last 26 years of detecting. I keep going back to what works for me and that is simplicitiy and reliablility. the Beachhunter has done this in more ways then one. I enjoy the 12'' coil for its depth and sensitivity. Its ability to handle salt water really well without falseing is a plus. The fact it can be chest mounted for longer hunting ability. NO ONE likes to get fatigued while detecting a heavy unit. I also like the fact this unit can be used in all weather conditions. One detector for all types of hunting. fresh water, salt water, dry beach and on land in the parks, fields and even relic hunting. This unit will do it all. Only thing I can complain about is just 1 thing. I wish the unit had interchangable coil options but with a waterproof coil plug. I love my BH. I have over $12,000.00 worth of bling from the Florida beaches to prove it. Just view my detecting guide on Amazon.com Metal Detecting The Beaches From Maine To Florida. Plenty of proof how well the BeachHunter works.
Best of Luck
