Sand Scoops – For Beach Hunting
There are a number of different kinds of scoops out there in different shapes and sizes; you just have to determine what suits your needs.
You could get a short hand scoop like the models shown below. Keep in mind that every time you want to scoop up sand and search for your target, you will have to bend down low to the ground.
Garrett Plastic Hand Scoop. While this is inexpensive and sells for under $20 on Amazon it looks very much like a child's toy shovel.

We found a very interesting scoop called the STAVRscoop, which is made by a company in the Ukraine. Several reviewers indicate that they are very sturdy, just find out if they come with handles, as most of the photos did not show any. The interesting thing about these scoops are the number of holes in the bucket area. It would appear that it would work great in dry or wet sand as it looks very lightweight.
Sells for around $145 and Up depending on model
