Advice from GoPro users: which model should I get?

Since I will be doing some serious treasure hunting this winter in SA and probably Mauritius as well, I was hoping to shoot some video of the process of metal detecting while I am in the ocean or on the beaches.

I have seen a lot of video by fellow metal detectorists, most of it mediocre, and I was wondering how to make mine better. I was thinking of buying a GoPro to take with me to get shots in the surf and perhaps underwater if I do any snorkeling or diving but I don't know what model to get.

GoPro seems to have a bunch of different models and I don't necessarily want 'the most expensive or newest model, but one that works best for what I will be doing.

Can any of you who own GoPros give me advice on which model to get?

I would love to take a drone but I have enough gear to lug around as is. Also, I would need another person to fly it while I am in the water.

I am look to self-shoot video while I am in heavy surf.

get whatever the base model is at the moment.. also get a pole mount so you can attach it to your scoop or the detector itself and a chest mount... then you can walk around and do your thing.

If you want to do more action stuff you can attach a mount to a square board and sit it in the water on the bottom as you sweep your detector around or start scooping.
