Snorkelling Fins - Full Foot


The Full Foot fin, or sometimes called closed heel or slipper style, is one that is worn barefoot and is much the same as putting on a regular slip-on shoe. Full foot fins are usually designated for warm water use such as in the tropics. This design offers no thermal insulation for the feet which is why it is also referred to as a warm water design.

With respect to sizing, the full foot heel does not have any adjustments so the range of feet that it fits is less than that of open heel fin styles. Those people with wider feet may also have issues with the full foot styling as the foot pockets are built to accommodate widths that are most common for the length of the foot of each size offered. People with high arches may find issue with the full foot design, due to the part of the pocket that covers the top of the foot which is, again, designed for the average foot. The pocket may cause stress by pushing downward making the fit uncomfortable.

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.
