cressi snorkel

Summer is truly underway, and naturally your thoughts are turning to the beach and swimming, as well as snorkeling.

But to experience your snorkel adventure, or even just a good long swim, you really need to be equipped with a top notch pair of fins.

However, if you are a novice, it may seem like a momentous task. Never fear, Beach Baby is here to help guide you through a selection of the four best snorkel fins to take to the beach this year.

As you can see, these are all manufactured by Cressi, of Italy. This is a family run company that was founded by two brothers in Genoa, specializing in water sports equipment.  They have been going since 1946, so they should certainly know a thing or two about fins!

The first pair we looked at were the Cressi Rondinella Fins For Snorkeling and Swimming.

These fins are available in a plethora of sizes, and come with quite precise measurements, given below.  Judging by the choice available, these should fit everyone from child to adult.

Our research shows customer feedback for these fins is at 71% on a five star approval rating, which is pretty impressive.  The remaining 26% is a four star, and only one review with a low star rating.

The first thing everyone says about these snorkeling fins is just how comfy they are to wear.  Made from polypropylene and coated with thermo rubber, this durable fin is very lightweight, and a joy to have on your foot!

Wearing these should make your snorkel or long swim a breeze, giving you plenty of speed and  power.

There seems to be no real issue with these fins, and Beach Baby thinks they are definitely one of the five best snorkel fins out there.

Cressi Reaction Pro Fins

Cressi Reaction Pro Fins - Scuba Snorkel Dive Fins review

Check price on Amazon

The next set we looked at were the Cressi Reaction Pro Fins. Rather pricier than the previous pair, these may be used for scuba diving, as well as snorkeling and free diving.

All the feedback for this product is excellent, scoring a highly respectable 4.8 out of five overall.

These are smart to look at, as well as highly comfortable to have on, and perform extremely well for the task at hand – or at foot!

Maybe they are a little pricier than some others, but ‘quality’ is the keyword here, and that is what you get, in spades…. or fins!

Cressi Pluma Fins

Check price on Amazon

Next we looked at the Cressi Pluma fins.  These are available in a wide selection of pretty colors, that have certainly sold extremely well.

The feedback for these is good, although there has been an issue with the sizing, so check the sizing carefully before ordering (there is a list below)  There seems to be no problem with the actual fins, which are of high quality.

Perhaps a little more ‘stiff’ than the previous pair we reviewed, a lot of this will depend on how you like your fins to feel, and personal preference.

Cressi Clio Fins

Cressi Clio Snorkleing and Diving Fin review

Check price on Amazon

Cressi Clio are the last set we looked at, and then we also looked at the complete snorkeling kit, with included a carrying bag.

The Clio is a fin that is suitable for all ages and all abilities.  The blade produces a very powerful kick, and the foot pocket is soft, and fits so very comfortably.

They are available in three colors, blue, yellow or black. The rest of the kit also includes color matching mask and snorkel.

If you need the whole kit in one package, this could be a good starting point for a complete snorkel set up.  A great birthday gift!

Overall, the Cressi range (which is bigger than this small sample featured here) should definitely be able to provide something for your snorkeling needs, whether you are a beginner, or advanced…. interested in snorkeling, or simply want to enjoy a long swim with the advantages that fins can offer.
