The Cressi palau short fins are specifically designed for swimming and snorkeling. These finds accommodate a wide variety of foot sizes and with a short fin, they are ideal for traveling. Wear them during all surf activities, canoeing, rafting and much more
giving 4 stars because have not used yet. BUT they look great, the small adjusts (w/strap) perfect for me -- ladies size 5. i got the short ones, as recommended by my scuba cousins -- as easier to pack. I plan on trying with a "discovery scuba" class (did one about 4 years ago) and some snorkeling.
This is the reliable product. Fit both myself and my 14 year old son.
