Tips and comments from our instructors
Scuba fins are as important as the rest of your scuba equipment, so know that to invest and properly choose a good pair will make a difference in your diving performance
Out there are many brands and options but what you need to know is which fins fit your:
There are 2 types of scuba fins: full foot and open heel. But what is the difference? If you’re new in scuba you’ll probably be lost with these two, but we got you.
FULL FOOT are usually soft and flexible foot pockets, it’s important to highlight that they cover your entire foot. With these you don’t need to wear scuba boots. The perfect diving scenario to use these is for diving in warm water.
OPEN-HEEL fins needs to be worn with scuba boots and can be used in any type of diving. Open-heeled scuba fins are by far the most common type of scuba fins. They are loved by all levels of divers. Open heel fins are also the best use for shore diving because you can walk out with your booties on and put the fins on later. At Achidiver we find this more comfortable, especially if you are spending a lot of time in the water as well.
Here is the pro's list of each one:
- Can wear with boots
- Easier to get a perfect fit
- Less buoyant
- Better for cold water
- Can accommodate spring straps
- Simple to use
- Better energy transfer from foot to blade
- More affordable
- Better for warm water
Important to know...
Open heels are worn usually by scuba divers and snorkelers usually worn full foot fins.
Make sure that your fins aren’t too tight or too loose-fitting.
