Snorkelers prefer lightweight snorkel fins with a closed foot section for snorkeling. Since snorkeling does not require as much strength or cold protection as diving, the use of heavy equipment fins with the accompanying neoprene feet would be a bit excessive.For snorkeling, the best fins are those with a closed foot section, which can be put on without further foot protection, and which do not weigh down the feet while snorkeling, and do not overstrain the leg muscles while snorkeling.
In our online snorkeling equipment store, we offer different models of snorkeling fins, starting with the very light travel fins from Aqualung, the well-known Caravelle snorkeling fins, which are very popular among snorkelers because they have a very soft, snug foot part, a soft fin blade and a very light weight. The Aqualung Caravelle snorkeling fins also convince not least because of the excellent price-performance ratio. The Aqualung snorkeling fins Caravelle are also available as Caravelle Junior model, so as snorkeling fins for children in our online dive store.
For ambitious snorkelers we offer in our online store for snorkeling equipment and diving equipment snorkeling fins with slightly more effective fin blade , such as the Scubapro snorkeling fins Jet Sport FF fin with medium hard fin blade or the Scubapro Seawing Nova FF snorkeling fins with hard and very efficient fin blade. The Tusa Solla FF Fin snorkeling fins also impress with a very high-quality finish and decent performance.
The Scubapro Seawing Nova FF snorkeling fins and the TUSA Solla FF fins with closed foot part are also very suitable as training fins or high-performance swim fins thanks to a firm fin blade and effective power conversion. Both of these fins are also available as equipment fins, i.e. fins with heel straps in our online store for snorkeling equipment - the Scubapro Seawing Nova fin and the TUSA Solla Fin equipment fin. So if you get cold feet quickly while snorkeling you are welcome to wear equipment fins for snorkeling, as well as the Mares Superchannel OH fins. Matching neoprene booties for equipment fins for diving or snorkeling can of course also be found in our snorkel online store.
Since the fin stroke in snorkeling is not as powerful as the fin stroke in diving, the hold of a fin with closed foot part is quite sufficient for snorkeling. For training purposes, in currents or when a firmer hold of the fin with closed foot part on the foot is generally required, you can use additional fin cross straps. You can also find these fins cross straps in our online diving store. They are also an optimal solution for snorkelers with very narrow feet where the foot part of normal snorkeling fins generally sits a little too loose. For the latter case we also recommend the use of neoprene socks in the snorkel fins which leads to a tight and secure fit of the snorkel fin on the foot.
Useful accessories for snorkel fins such as neoprene socks or fin bags, as well as other snorkeling equipment such as snorkel wetsuits, snorkels or snorkel masks can of course also be found in our online dive store.
