What kind of scuba fins can I choose from?

Look for a Range of Styles in Scuba Fins

The good news about scuba fins is that there are more styles and choices than ever before. The challenge for divers is finding the right fins for their body type and diving needs.

The early-generation, full-foot diving flippers are still used by a lot of people. But there are newer, angled styles that allow for more efficient movement through the water.

Scuba divers usually prefer adjustable heel straps and a range of styles -- angled, split or force fins. Snorklers often use paddle fins, which allow for leisurely swims over reefs.

Comfort should be choice No. 1. Dive fins that feel uncomfortable or awkward won't work well for you.
