Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector

The World's Best Beach, Wading, and Diving Metal Detector

The Excalibur II series is fully submersible to depths of 200 feet, and it features a staggering 17 frequencies to find more coins, rings, and treasures buried deeper than ever!

Bill Myers

Bill Myers has been metal detecting for 35 years. Well known as one of the most experienced beach hunters and host-instructor on a series of new DVD's on Metal Detecting Florida (or any) beaches; he says:

"If you are on an unlimited budget and want the ultimate beach water detector,the choice would be the Minelab Excalibur II. The Excalibur II is one of the most desired water-proof detectors in the market. It is water proof to a depth of 250ft and works well with dry sand, wet sand, and water. It works well in salt and fresh water as well. The Excalibur II is higly rated and preferred by many professional metal hunters. I use an Excalibur detector just about everyday and its definitely my favorite detector."

The first metal detectors were produced by manufactures to use the best frequency for detecting. These single frequency detectors were, and are, very successful! Detector manufacturers were recently able to produce dual frequency detectors to allow users to cover twice the frequency range and find more coins and treasure than they could with a single frequency detector. Since single frequency detectors are good, and dual frequency detectors are better, a detector series with a broad band spectrum of 17 frequencies most certainly offers the very best opportunities for detector users to recover far more coins, rings, jewelry, relics, and treasures.

What Is Minelab's Exclusive Iron Mask Feature?

The Iron Mask Feature is exclusive to Minelab detectors and makes signals from iron trash non-existent! Only signals from good targets are strong and clear, at depths that are almost beyond belief. Recognizing a valuable target that is near a piece of iron can be a problem for all conventional metal detectors. If the detector is set to reject the iron under a variety of mineralized ground conditions, then it is likely to reject the target also. For example: A coin buried near a nail will be passed over by many detectors. Because of its 17 frequencies, the Excalibur II is exceptional at distinguishing between nonferrous, good targets and the ferrous, iron trash. In the discrimination mode the iron mask feature allows you to locate good targets among ferrous junk.

Multiple Frequency Detectors are Simple to Use and Operate

Multiple Frequency detectors like the Excalibur II series are simple to operate - as easy, if not easier, to use than single frequency detectors. Turn it on, set the controls, and start searching for coins and treasures. The Excalibur II Metal Detectors do ALL the work! A microprocessor translates target signals and removes interference caused by ground mineralization (which ordinarily limits the depth at which targets can be found) and often results in inaccurate target identification. The remaining signal is then analyzed to determine the actual composition of the targets even if the ground is heavily mineralized. This gives the detector user the very best opportunity to recover more coins, rings, relics, treasure, etc. Why settle for coming home with 10, 20, or 30 coins when you can just as easily recover 100, 200, or 300 coins in the same amount of time!

Searching with the Excalibur II is like having 17 detectors in one control housing, transmitting over a range of 1.5 kHz to 25.5 kHz in 1.5 kHz steps. All frequencies are transmitted together at one time. Imagine being able to find gold or silver rings, necklaces, bracelets, medals and medallions, in addition to the thousands of deep coins that have eluded all single and dual frequency detectors. The Minelab Excalibur II with its Multiple Frequency technology gives you the edge to slash through difficult soils and high salt concentrations. Designed with an Iron Mask which gives you the edge for hunting in areas littered with trash and nails and still pick up gold and coin targets. Excalibur II is the first underwater detector with 17 separate frequencies to operate simultaneously and have multiple tone response to help you recover many more coins, rings, and treasures than any other similar detector! Detectors with only one or two frequencies miss a lot of great targets - leaving them for you to pick up with your Multiple Frequency Excalibur II detector. You will find MORE valuables, and find them DEEPER! At the end of the day, compared to other detectorists, you will be the one coming back with the majority of coins, rings, and jewelry!

  • Powerful Discrimination
    The Excalibur II enables you to choose the types of objects which you want to find and ignore the rest (discrimination). Just set the DISC (discriminator) control to the desired position then collect the goodies and ignore the junk. This makes finding rings and coins a breeze in areas littered with ferrous metals.

  • Tone Identification
    Each type of object will produce a different signal tone. With a bit of practice you’ll know every time exactly what you’ve found before you dig it up. The tone for a gold coin will be distinctly different from that of a silver ring.

  • New Improved NiMH Rechargeable Battery Pack
    The Excalibur II's rechargeable battery pack is in a compartment separate from the electronics. Using a state-of-the-art NiMH rechargeable battery you can hunt longer and not have to worry about a recharge memory because you can recharge at any time when needed. When the battery needs recharging, just clip the pack off the shaft and plug it straight into the charger. It's quick, simple, and best of all, you don't have to touch a single seal, so there are no worries about leaks.

  • Greatly Improved Slimline Excalibur II Search Coil
    All Excalibur II's feature Minelab's Improved lighter weight Slimline Series fully submersible encapsulated DD search coil. Hunt longer with less fatigue and less turbulence with using in the water because of the lower Slimline profile. Heavy-duty cabling and a new solid build for long term reliability.

  • Use it Underwater, on the Beach, or on Land
    The unique design and electronics of the Excalibur II enable you to use it just as effectively in or out of the water. Whether it's down 200 feet in the ocean, on the beach, in the park, or in a river of gold, the Excalibur II will perform superbly every time.

Review by Daniel D on July 09, 2012

I bought my first metal detector from Kellyco in 1979 it was a bounty hunter I used this detector for many years. I went on a treasure hunt back in the 70's with Kellyco to the Dade massacre. I found a lot of musket balls on that trip. Since then I have bought a Garrett Master Hunter treasure talk. I have found numerous coins and relics, and recently I bought a Minelab Excalibur II. This is by most the best detector I have ever owned.

I thought it be fun to start detecting the beach. Most of the people I see detecting are on dry sand. Well let me tell you the Minelab Excalibur is the ultimate metal detector, since I can now detect in the water. I have found jewelry and relics in the surf. The surf has covered me and my detector.

The detector works excellent never had any problems. I have a four year warranty on the unit but I don't think I will ever use it. After detecting for the day I brought it home and hosed it off with the garden hose. By far the Minelab Excalibur is the best detector for the money. I was really did not want to spend the money for the detector but you get what you pay for. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I would not buy from any other dealer, because simply put: Kellyco is the best. I have always bought my supplies from Kellyco; they always have every thing you need. I had an indicator cap for a knob fall off of my detector in the surf. . I went to Kellyco but they did not have anymore in stock. The sales rep took one off the display model and gave it to me, did not cost me a dime.

Hi, I recently purchased my Excalibur II and I have to say that it is truly a perfect machine for the beach and water hunting I do.

It took me about a week to begin to distinguish the different signature tones for the Excalibur but, in about 2 ½ weeks I have already found a nice gold ring and an assortment of .925% silver jewelry.

I really like the ease of the turn on and go nature of the Excalibur. I simply tune the threshold and leave my other dials set from my last successful hunt and I'm off.

I do wish however that this machine had some sort of battery gauge, as it is hard as a new detectorist to know just how much of the battery I have used up. I have just taken to charging the battery overnight before a big hunting day and that seems to work fine.

I bought a second detector shortly after this one so that I could have an extra for friends to go with me (Ace 250) and even though the Ace is a great machine, I'll never give up the Excalibur II. Once you learn to "hear" what it's telling you, it is all to easy to determine your targets.

The Excalibur machine is a great machine. You will find lots of great things. The only cons I have about the machine are knobs , and Minelab customer service. The knobs if you are not careful will strip off and you have to replace them. As far as customer service, MineLab needs to keep up with demand. I waited about 5 months on my machine , because they were back ordered. The Excalibur is probably the best water machine out there. As soon as I got mine, I found some old silver dollars and about 5 rings. If you purchase this machine, be mindful of the delicate knobs.

I received my new Excalibur 1000 and new stainless steel scope from Kellyco, and was excited to be able to use the following weekend. I found it easy to set the control knobs after reading the booklet that was supplied with the machine. My friend and I who also uses an Excalibur 1000 traveled to a local lake and hunted two swim beaches, which normally get a lot of traffic from other water hunters. Between the two of us, with found two 10K and one 14K rings along with approx. $6 in coins. The discrimination that Minelab offers kept me from digging any nails or iron. Gold has a unique sound that tells you, that you have something special. My Garrett 250 has a special sound for coins that I really like, but there is nothing like gold to make your heart race. I would recommend the Excalibur 1000 to anyone wants to take their treasure hunting to the next level.

I give the Excalibur 5 gold stars!

I have owned two Minelab Excaliburs. My first was the Excalibur 800 with the blue headphones. That machine paid for itself the first week of ownership with three gold rings found at state park swimming areas. My second is the Excalibur II 1000.

I really love the Excalibur as it is very much like the Sovereign which is an excellent land machine. I love the beaches and the Sovereign, although a great machine, it would be damaged for sure by getting dunked in salt water. So the Excalibur fits the bill for me as far as not having to worry about it getting wet.

The Excalibur 800 is ideal for water hunting as it swings through the water easily with the small coil. I do recommend getting a straight shaft for the Excalibur as the factory shaft can be uncomfortable for some people. The straight shaft will put the control pod behind you and balance the Excalibur so you can swing it all day without getting tired. Some people prefer the hip mount but you must be careful when hip mounting as the wires have a habit of coming lose.

Salt water is a problem for most single frequency detectors and you will get all kinds of noises when hitting the water. Not with the Excalibur. With 17 frequencies, the Excalibur works perfect in almost all conditions. The only time it does not work as well as a PI machine is when in black sand.

My detectors are tools to make money and I have been very successful in finding jewelry in the water and wet sand. Coins are fun to find but they do not pay as well as jewelry especially when gold is over $1000 an ounce.

My Excalibur 800 was stolen out of my car and so I went and bought the Excalibur II 1000. With the 1000, which has the 10 inch coil, I can cover more area with it than the 800. It is also a bit deeper. But in very trashy areas it has a tendency to null too much because it covers so much area.

The Excalibur II seems to be a bit more stable than the older Excaliburs. Not sure if they are deeper but I love the new NIMH batteri
