Ok - thanks. Another question: can you give me how many inched long are the fins?(length). I want to get a bag and I need to know how long they are.
Hello Lisa, these fins are 24" in length. The bag that I would suggest for these fins is the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-76/018207/Scuba-Mask--Fin---Snorkel-Backpack-Bag.html. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
My husband wears an 11 E shoe size. His foot is very wide. What fin size would you suggest?
The only way to fit an extra wide foot is to go up one size. As long as the item is not used in the water you have up to 60 days to refund or exchange it.
Im taking a trip and want to do some snorkeling. My friend said they make fins that are shorter and easy for traveling with. I have long ones and they are a pain to bring along. Can you tell me which fins I should get.
My 16 yr old son, 6 ft 7 in, wears a 15 shoe. He wants a diving fin for springs areas down here in Florida. We do not want to pay much. Which fin do you suggest. This fin only goes up to size 13. Thanks. Kathy Sutton
I am looking for a fin which does not cause my feet to float to the surface so easily. What do you recommend? I prefer a closed toe. Thanks
Most all scuba and snorkeling fins are neutral to slightly negatively buoyant, but not all. Most all full foot fins have some sort of opening at the toe, whether it is small holes or a larger opening. This is designed to let the air escape the fin and keep it from popping off the feet easily when in use. Manufacturers rarely give information on the buoyancy of a fin so in the end, trial and error become your only real test.
I wear an 11 shoe. Obviously right at the edge of the 2 size groups. Which size do you think would work best?
I like my fins to be on the tight side. I am a seasoned snorkeling looking to upgrade my fins. What size would you recommend if I wear a 7.5 in sneakers? Also, how do these compare to the mare fins?
Id like to order these fins for my husband who needs a size 12. In the snorkel package, theyre available in a mens size 11-13, but the highest they go if I order individually is 9-11. Can I get them in size 11-13?
My son is going on his first diving trip and we are ordering the carribean snorkel set . What size fin he is about a 9 to 9.5 shoe
I wear a mens size 9 shoe and plan on wearing the fins with 3 mm dive socks. I also dont want the fins to be too loose. Would the 7-9 be too tight?
The Ocean Quest Caribbean Full Foot Fins are the perfect warm water answer for divers and snorkelers. The Caribbean Full Foot Fin features proven Channel Thrust Technology that reduces water spillage over the sides of the blade during the kick cycle to give the diver optimal performance.
The light weight blade packs well and is perfect for travel. It is designed using a durable hydro-plastic with a rubber center section that allows the fin to remain relatively soft and comfortable during those relaxing dives. As the diver exerts more effort in their kick it causes the rubberized portion of the fin to flex allowing the hydro-plastic portion to curve around it forming a water directing channel giving the diver increased efficiency. This forces the water down the blade, propelling the diver, rather than allowing the water to be wasted by spilling over the sides. Maintaining this optimal thrust throughout every phase of the finning stroke minimizes fatigue while maintaining consistent performance. Excellent blade snap offers additional performance on the normally weaker up-stroke of the diver’s kick. The Caribbean Full Foot Fins are manufactured offered in blue with black accenting and available in shoe sizes 3-13.
