Scuba Diving Fins And Booties:

A Buyers Guide to Help You Find the Best Pair For You

The right pair of scuba diving fins and booties can make a big difference in your dive enjoyment. If your fins don't fit you correctly, you will spend the dive thinking about them rather than enjoying all the beautiful sights underwater.

This is one piece of scuba gear you don't want to notice once you are diving.

I remember when I used a pair of rented fins and they didn't have any left in my size so I used a smaller size.

After the dive when I took those fins off, my feet looked like they were sunburned they were so red.

Not an experience I wish to repeat and not one I want you to have.

To that end, this guide will help you choose the best pair of fins and booties for you. We have all the information you need to know about types, styles, sizing, fit and care.

(For information on other types of dive equipment, take a look at our free scuba gear guides.)
