Snorkeling Techniques & Tips : Types of Fins: Snorkeling Techniques & Tips

On behalf of expertvillage.com, my name is
Raymond Temeyer with Lost Island Voyages, and we also have with us Valerie Kevorkian
from Tarpoon Lagoon Dive Center in Miami Beach. We’re going to talk about snorkeling today
and all the opportunities that it provides. Again, when picking out equipment, it’s
best to go to a professional at your local dive store. Your choices are vast and also
they recommend the proper fin for whatever application you’re doing in the water. You’ll
notice here that I have a couple of fins spread out that are good for snorkeling. One is your
basic full foot fin; it encompasses your entire foot when you’re foot is placed into it.
It’s got a simple blade to it that will enable you to move through the water. Another
choice is something see through. Same type of a fin, full foot fin, full foot pocket,
and this time you’ve got a little bit different material on the blade of that fin. If you
want to get into a little hit more of a fin, it’s larger, the blade is a little bit stronger,
it’s got support rails on the side that enable you to move through the water quite
efficiently. A new fin that’s come out is something called a split fin, and that looks
like this. It gives you a real natural kick in the water, and even though they’re a
little bit more expensive than the other fin choices, they seem to be quite comfortable
in the water. This fin is for a professional diver who is going to be doing some intense free diving. I wouldn’t recommend this if you’re a beginning a snorkeler.

  4. If you want to answer a question for most of the people watching this, why are you only recomending / showing full heel fins & not straps for your feet, is one better then the other?

  5. since the video is so awesome and it exaplains a lot!

  6. @Matfred2007 the black fin is a perpetual fin…its a longer and thicker fin it is meant for scuba diving mainly it makes kicking at a slower pace more efficient
