The Tesoro Tiger Shark uses microprocessor technology to create a true dual function metal detector. Hunt on the land, at the shore or dive with the Tesoro Tiger Shark. This model is waterproof to 200 feet and is equally comfortable on the land.

A True Land and Water Detector

The Tesoro Tiger Shark uses microprocessor technology to create a true multi function land and underwater metal detector. In the normal mode the unit works like any other Tesoro metal detector. On land the Tesoro Tiger Shark can be used for coin & relic hunting as well as gold prospecting.

Perfect for Diving

The Tesoro Tiger Shark shines as a water detector in fresh and wet salt areas, making it one of the most versatile detectors available. It is fully waterproof to 200 feet and is equipped with four controls on the outside, to fine tune your detector to handle whatever conditions you are working in.

Hot on Gold Chains

The Sand Shark is designed for fresh and salt water treasure hunting. If you expect to spend the bulk of your time in the salt water, consider the Sand Shark. If you will be hunting primarily on land and in the fresh water this model is your best bet. The salt water mode is a good compromise. This model includes a full discrimination adjustment to filter out the junk. Turn on and go simplicity makes the Tiger Shark the choice of many water hunters. This machine is incredibly hot on gold chains. In fact, this machine is one of the few under water detectors with this capability.

We do, but this model is out-of-stock, as you can see. Tesoro went out of business a bit over a year ago, so I would suggest checking out a different model.
