Our Story

Our Story - The Heart Behind DetectorDirect

Welcome to DetectorDirect, where our passion for treasure hunting and metal detecting is the cornerstone of everything we do. Our journey began not in a corporate boardroom, but out in the open fields, along the shores, and in the backyards where treasures awaited discovery.

The Spark of Passion: It all started with a metal detector, a gift that ignited a lifelong passion in our founder, Martin Zatarain. Martin spent years combing through the soil, unearthing relics of the past, and experiencing the thrill of discovering hidden treasures. It wasn’t just about what was found; it was about the adventure, the history, and the stories behind each find.

From Hobby to Business: DetectorDirect was born from this passion. Martin realized that he wanted to share this excitement with others. What began as a weekend hobby soon turned into a mission to help others experience the joy of treasure hunting.

A Family Business: DetectorDirect is not just another store; it's a family-run business. We believe in being more than just a retailer; we're your guides in this fascinating hobby.

Our Commitment to You: We stand behind every product we sell because we use them too. Our store is a reflection of our belief in quality, reliability, and the sheer joy of metal detecting. We're not just here to sell; we're here to guide and support your treasure hunting journey.

Real People, Real Passion: Visit our About Us page to see pictures of our family, our finds, and our adventures. We are real people with a real passion for metal detecting, and we bring this authenticity to DetectorDirect.

Why DetectorDirect? We understand the thrill of the hunt and the anticipation of what lies beneath. We've been there, and we want to bring that same excitement to you, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced enthusiast.

DetectorDirect is more than just a store - it’s a community. It’s a place where you can find not only the best equipment but also advice, stories, and a shared passion for unearthing the hidden treasures of our world.

Welcome to our family. Welcome to DetectorDirect.
