    First Salt Water Trip....Cozumel

    Had a chance to try salt water detecting while on vacation and I must admit, it's the BOMB! I can see why you guys and gals love doing it. digging the sand is easy compared to dirt and even though I didn't find gold this trip I'll have another chance before the year is over. I didn't have the chance to hunt or time where I wanted because of the boss, but I did wear out our Resort's Beach and Shallow Waters (about 20 x 75 yards).

    I was using a Tesoro Sand Shark and it performed pretty well considering I'm a land guy (Oklahoma). it was a blast and I can't wait to do it again, it was such a rush every time I scooped that sand....... "it was awesome waiting to see what was in that scoop". I managed to find a few things....1 .925 Silver ring and a Ladies watch (YESS) among a bunch of coins and some ear rings and some cosmetic jewelry. Thanks for looking, LFG

    That knife looks just like a Boker Titan II my sister gave me. Mine is in considerably better condition, though.

    Nice finds ... sounds like a GREAT vacation. HH

    Very nice finds, lfg!

    Beach hunting is lots of fun; I would also like to do more dirt detecting and maybe find some coins in great condition instead of pitted from the salt water and sand.

    WARNING! Beach detecting can be very addicting! Once you're hooked the desire never goes away.......
    Glad you had a nice trip and enjoyed the beach/water hunting so much. I see many beach finds in your future!

    No, I packed my unit in my carry on with the manual and the rods in my checked luggage. once I hit the Hotel, I mentioned to the front desk clerk I brought my detector and I was wanting to hunt the beach... he said go ahead, have fun, hope you find your treasure. my take? they don't care unless you decide to dig up their property. the water is a non restricted area anyways unless it's in the national park there. these resort people just want your business this time of year due to the low season.... HH, LFG

    The Beach Security guy even helped me dig a coin once.. I put the headphone's on his head so he could hear the target, he loved it, asked how much they cost.... then he ran, LOL

    Also, Thanks Folks, LFG

    It is always fun to go on trips and try to find items on the beach. I have been several times to Cozumel and detected.
