Our Staff

Newport Metal Detectors is not just a web page, we are a physical store with a staff.  Our staff are metal detectorists by hobby and trade.  If you want to see how a machine works with a demo, you can come in and see for yourself and ask questions.  One-on-one service... that's what we provide.

Whether you are interested in beach hunting, relic hunting, or want to rent a detector to find property stakes we're here to help.

Our Story

Since 2002, we have shared our store space with Advanced Water Systems, Inc., an authorized independent Kinetico dealer.

Since Kinetico & White's Electronics are both American made, that is something we can get behind and support.

Meet the Team

Our staff enjoys metal detecting and wants to fit you with the detector that suits you so you can get out there and start detecting!
