The Tesoro Tiger Shark metal detector was introduced in 2000 and ceased production in 2018. The Tiger Shark is a fully submersible 12.5 kHz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at beach and underwater detecting. The Tiger Shark is submersible to 200 feet and therefore suitable for SCUBA diving. Note however that the coil and headphones are hardwired for extra waterproof integrity and are not interchangeable. There is a choice of 8" or 10.5" search coils at the time of purchase.

"The Tiger Shark is hands down one of the best fresh water metal detectors on the market. This simple machine is made for the detectorist who wants to spend their time finding treasure, not memorizing special controls and techniques. The Tiger Shark’s Salt Mode changes the ground balance range to handle salt instead of minerals. This detector’s coil and headphones are hardwired to the machine to protect the machine from leaks, allowing it to
be submerged up to 200 feet. Available with an 8” or 10.5” search coil."
