Beach and Water Metal Detectors

Listed below are metal detectors that were specifically designed to to be used underwater for locating gold or silver jewelry, coins, and other artifacts. Generally speaking, there are two types of detectors on this page:
Discriminating
Non Discriminating, such as PI (Pulse Induction)

Discriminating
As the name suggests, you can discriminate (eliminate) iron, hot rocks, bottlecaps, and other unwanted metals that may be present at the beach or your diving spot, saving you time and a sore back.
Non Discriminating (Marked in red)
Yes, you guessed it, it's a "dig everything" detector that will keep you digging and digging. A Pulse Induction (PI) detector normally goes deeper and could give you an edge over the competition.

Much more could be said, but I don't want to overwhelm you with technical terms and confuse you more than you might already be.
