Dive Fins - Open Heel


Stainless Steel Spring Fin Straps
You'll notice here that we recommend open heel fins with spring fin straps. Spring fin straps are popular with experienced recreational and technical divers because they are extremely reliable and easy to use. Because there is nothing to clip, snap or adjust, spring fin straps make putting on and removing your fins easy and fast, especially if you have to do it in the water! They automatically adjust to the divers feet during the dive, compensating for depth and compression of boot material. Some fins are available with string fin straps, while others will require you to buy the string fin straps as a fin accessory.

Beware of Fin Hyperbole
Fin designs are an aspect of dive equipment that seem more like fashion trends, and there seems to always be someone promoting "a better mousetrap". Most of these elaborate fin designs work fine when used to move forward at a modest speed using a flutter scissor kick, and the split fin design tests especially well in this regard. However, many designs are poor if you wish to frog kick or use almost any of the swimming techniques preferred by experienced divers in tight spaces. Full foot pockets and elaborate heel strap systems are also more likely to cause the loss of a fin in forceful swimming. Be sceptical of those "fin performance reviews" that favour the casual recreational diver. Many knowledgeable divers choose a versatile no-frills open-heel fin design with a stiff blade and a strong, reliable spring strap at an affordable price.

Depth: 20 m (66 ft) to 30 m (98 ft)

Ramsbotham Rocks are located on the north-east tip of Great Glennie Island, which is the largest island in the Glennie Group at Wilsons Promontory, Victoria, Australia. It's a sheltered spot to dive, especially if there is a south-easterly wind blowing. The dive site features interesting rock formations and large boulders with caves and swim throughs.

The rocks slope down to a sandy bottom at around 30 metres deep.

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes parts of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-west, down to Wilson's Promontory in the south-east, including the Mornington Peninsula, French Island and Phillip Island, plus Western Port. We wish to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge Bunjil the Creator Spirit of this beautiful land, who travels as an eagle, and Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow, and thank them for continuing to watch over this Country today and beyond.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
