Snorkeling fins are one of the most essential pieces of aquatic gear that you’ll buy. Without them, you’d have a hard time jetting through the water after the pretty fish you’re trying to snap an underwater picture of. Not all snorkeling fins are created the same, so there are a few things that you need to look out for.
The most important thing about choosing snorkeling fins is the fit. You want to make sure that they won’t cut off your circulation, but you also need to make sure that they’ll fit snuggly, so you don’t lose them in the water. Depending on if you’ll wear boots with the fins, you’ll need to try the snorkeling fins on with the boots also. You should be able to see a couple of inches of your boots poking through the fins to know that they fit correctly.
With great fitting fins, you’ll be able to glide through the water with little effort and move much faster than without them!
