    Beach hunting Florida

    I am possibly going to Florida in a few weeks to get out of the cold. I have never detected on the beach. I read up on the laws in Florida and it is my understanding that you can only hunt between the dunes and the high tide mark. Am I understanding this correctly? I have a Minelab Equinox 600 and was really looking forward to at least getting out on a low tide.
    TIA.

    You're restricted from hunting in the water along the Treasure Coast as that area is leased by the state to salvage operations. Other areas except state and national beaches are open to water hunting...such areas like Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach, etc are fair game for you to get in the water.

    Good luck....

    Colonel is correct, the restriction your speaking of is on the Treasure Coast on Florida's east coast from just north of Jensen beach to about 1/2 mile north of Sebastian Inlet.

    Here is a link on the treasure coast.

    All National sea shores are off limits and so are all inland state parks, state parks on the coast, some allow detecting, you have to ask when you enter, some on the coast allow detecting on the beach only.

    Good luck detecting.....
