The Cave Diving Website


The one thing most recreational and cave divers have in common when it comes to propulsion is a preference for adjustable fins. It is there, however, where the similarities end.

Fins Entanglement Hazard

Cave divers avoid most common fin design gimmicks, including locking plastic buckles, movable panels and the most current design fad, split fin blades. Split fins not only create a substantial guideline entanglement hazard, they do not work well for common cave diving kicks, such as the frog kick and modified flutter.

Cave diving fins tend to be simple, yet powerful. A recent trend among cave divers is the use of spring heels straps. These not only make it easier to don and remove fins, they also reduce the entanglement hazard created by complex fin buckle assemblies.
