I would sure love to try. I've seen videos from hunts on Mexico beaches and they found all kinds of good stuff.

Yes, I had a couple of good trips there also, but Eleanor and I both had ALL our detecting equipment confiscated at the airport, and a week later it took over an hour to get everything back the morning we left for home. I have not gone back since.

Check with the cruise line you are traveling on for their listing of FORBIDEN ITEMS.

NCL restricts them on some itineraries due to the island's restrictions. If you take them aboard and try to get off the ship with a detector, it may be confiscated by either the cruise line or local security personnel.

Metal Detectors​

Metal detectors are on the prohibited items list for most cruise lines. It seems that they could cause a problem with the ships electrical and navigational systems.

Enjoy the trip, stay safe....WaterWalker

Jamaica me crazy booouy!! The place is a zoo !! If you are not in the designated tourist areas....your fair game for robbery, and carrying a metal detector won't last 30 mins in most areas. I once willingly gave up my nikes to some very persuasive islanders !! They made a very sensible argument for them.....give me your shoes and get out of here or we beat your a** and take them anyway !! I gave them my shoes and was allowed to pass unmolested.....back to the hotel barefoot, lesson learned.....stay inside the gate !!
