Complete your Snorkel Set or Scuba Dive Set with a great pair of Fins!

A scuba or a snorkel fin increases your ability to move quickly and efficiently through the water. There are numerous options to consider in order to increase your enjoyment of the sport based on your needs and ability. The most important factor to consider in selecting your personal snorkel or scuba equipment is comfort and fit. Recreational diving and snorkeling is intended to be fun. And to maximize your fun, you must have snorkeling equipment and scuba gear that fits properly.

Other key features to consider, when purchasing a scuba fin, are your ability level, stiffness of the fin, construction of the fin, and heels. Your ability level and leg strength must be considered when choosing the proper fins. If you are using dive or snorkel fins that do not match your skill level, you will either not have the proper stamina or you will "over" kick the fin.  Either way you will not be as efficient as you could be.  Size and stiffness largely dictate snorkel fins or dive fins efficiency. An experienced diver with strong legs and hip muscles should opt for a bigger, stiffer dive fins.  More flexible fins require less leg muscle and the diver does not become as fatigued. 

Paddle Fin vs. Split Fins

The two main types of fin construction are a paddle fin and a split fin. Paddle fin is the most common scuba fin on the market. The one piece construction works like a paddle as you kick through the water. Manufacturers have refined this construction with rails and ribs to help channel water and increase your efficiency, fin stability and power. Split fin technology simulates a propeller slicking through the water. A Split Fin slices through the water to decrease turbulence and increase power. Ultimately, this design requires less energy and provides for an easier kick.

Open Heel Fins vs Full Foot Fins

Scuba Fins

The two main types of heel construction are full foot style and open heel scuba fins. Full foot style can be worn without dive booties and are great for warm water scuba diving. Open heel scuba fins are to be worn with dive boots. This allows for built-in protection and comfort. Open heel fin straps are adjustable to fit your foot to desired tightness and comfort level. You can adjust an open-heel fin for different diving conditions that require thinner or thicker booties. Open heel scuba fins are usually easier to put on, especially with a quick release clip.
