August 18, 2006, Newsletter Issue #28: Snorkeling Equipment - Selecting Fins

Tip of the Week

Fins are an important piece of snorkeling equipment. There are two types.

* The full foot or Caribbean fin is fine if you plan to do your snorkeling tour from a boat or sandy beach.
* The other style is the open heel variety that requires a bootie or reef shoe to be used. These are handy if you plan to walk along rocky shores to the water.

There are different blade styles and sizes, as well as stiffness. A large person generally requires a more substantial fin to propel them through the water. Consult a good dive shop to help you select the proper fin.
