The majority of divers use an open heel fin which are designed to be worn with a bootie. Open heel fins are versatile because they can be used for boat diving, but are also really useful in shore diving. In shore diving, walking along the shore in bare feet with a heavy tank on your back can hurt your feet. If you are using an open heel fin you will have a bootie on to protect your feet from rocks and other sharp objects.
Full foot fins tend to be less expensive than open heal fins and less bulky, but make sure they fit or the improper fit will cause blisters.

Dear friends, We hope you and yours are well and remaining safe during these uncertain times. We’re grateful to our in-store family, many customers and working diligently to remain safe.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, and by order of the Governor of Colorado, “all non-essential businesses are to temporarily close until mid to late April.” Unfortunately, this includes A-1 Scuba.
However, you don’t have to stop thinking about diving. Instead, if you’re new to diving you can begin today with your own online digital manual. Or if you’re already certified you can choose from a large selection of cool SSI online digital manuals including our popular Ecology Specialties (Shark, Ray, Turtle, Marine and Fish Identification) as well as other popular specialties including Stress & Rescue, Nitrox, Night, Deep, Navigation and more. CLICK HERE to learn more.
Once you choose and purchase your online manual, you’ll be sent simple directions on how to create your own MySSI Account. It’s a lot like creating a bank account and it’s FREE ……. for life. Once you create your account we’ll deposit your online digital manual. All you have to do is download it to one or more of your devices (phone, tablet or computer). And get this, they will remain updated for life ……. for FREE! Once things return to a “new normal” (and they will) we’ll contact you and let you know the available dates for the associated course.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this horrific disease. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Your friends, The A-1 Scuba & Travel Center Aquatics Center Team
