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 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 Gary on January 27, 2017
I used the Excalibur I to death. The II is just as good. It is a great machine, perfect for the beach and shallow water hunting I do. I do, however, have two complaints. First is the knobs. I was hoping Minelab would rework these in this version. They did not and the knobs are an issue. They stick out and can break easily. They also loosen up and fall off so make sure you keep them tight. The second complaint is trying to get into the battery case. After my battery went dead on my Excalibur I, I replaced it with a setup that allowed you to use replaceable AA batteries. The problem is trying to get the lid off the battery case to change batteries as needed. With all that said it is a great working machine and should give you many many years of fun hunting.
Just Buy It
Review by NUMIS33 on April 04, 2016
I've had my Excalibur for about 5 years now so this review may inform you a bit better than most on what to expect from your new machine. First and foremost, this is a very high quality machine, both in materials used and quality of build. After a fairly simple assembly and a quick read of the owners manual you should be able to start hunting with moderate success. The only reason I say moderate is because there is a small learning curve for those who had been using a detector with one of those silly info. screens that (supposedly) tells you exactly what you've found and how deep it is. Having said all that, this is not a good choice for beginners. All of the info. on your target is determined by sound alone. It can take a considerable amount of time to get good at this and I strongly advise you to buy the CD available through Kellyco on sound interpretation made specifically for the Excalibur 2. The CD was produced by a music / sound and tone expert and will save you from doing a lot of useless digging. As far as performance is concerned you can expect it to do everything it is advertised to do. There are two inexpensive upgrades you should buy at the time of purchase. The first is an Anderson straight shaft to replace the awkward factory shaft and the second is a full set of Anderson control Knobs. You`ll most likely have problems with the factory knobs right off the bat (most people do). If you live on or near any body of water, as I do, (The Treasure Coast of Florida) and you want to do some wet detecting, either wading , snorkeling or diving this is the machine you need to be using. It`s worth every penny you pay for it and when you throw in the freebees from Kellyco it`s a downright bargain. On a scale of 1-5 stars I rate it a 6.

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 far the best detector I have ever owned. I thought it would 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 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 everything 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 that 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.
