Sea Shell City in nearby Fenwick Island used to sell metal detecting equipment in their museum area (upstairs) and maybe still do so. They may also rent the equipment. Call them at 302.539.9366 or 888.743.5524 for more information.

Ace Hardware at 69th once rented them, and likely still does. I think they only had one of them available. Call them at 410.524.2300 to find out more and maybe reserve one.

You do not need a license or any permission to metal detect on OC's beaches, but it is prohibited on Assateague.

Ace is the place for buying one.  Fenwick Hardware has them as well.  Amazon.com stocks many models and the accessories you need - like a sifter.

There are no stores like that in Ocean City. However, I believe  you can rent and/or buy them at the Ace Hardware store on 68th St. Coastal Highway.  Or you can borrow one or bring one from home. You can use them on the beach, but please be courteous of people on the beach.  The best time of day to use them is in the evening when people are mostly off the beach. Have fun.

Hey Michael, I always rented mine at Ace Hardware on 68th street. I don't think there any stores like that in OC. Sorry.
