Snorkel Gear for Kids - Best Flippers

Soft Foot Pocket for Little Feet

Snorkel Gear for Kids - Finding Great Flippers

Both of our children (4-yr-old and 8-yr-old) are snorkelers!  It is an exciting hobby and fun activity that our family shares.  Our son first tried his snorkel gear in the open ocean with us at a snorkel site off of Maui... the gorgeous Molokini, when he was only 2 1/2-yrs-old.  It was a rocky start, and he ended up bobbing along, cradled safely in my arm as I snorkeled.  But, by 3 1/2-yrs-old, he was snorkeling better than many adults on our vacation in Mexico.  It is very important for kids to have good snorkeling gear to give them confidence in the water.  That being noted, it is incredibly difficult to find quality gear that will work for little faces and little feet.

Through much trial and error, I have finally found a good flipper for little feet.  They are a softer rubber material, have a nice foot area, stay on in the water, and are made well.  Both of my children used these flippers for 2 weeks in Hawaii and the flippers still look brand new.  The flippers helped them maneuver easily through the water.  Also, the flippers were easy to slip on in the water, and they stayed on their feet!!

XXXSmall Flipper
Check these out, the price cannot be beat and the shipping was quick.  The one downside is that they are only available in one color per size.  My daughter, who wears a toddler size 9 1/2-10 1/2 fit the XXXSmall (solid blue) perfectly, they were a little roomy, but stayed on perfectly.  My son, who wears a youth size 2 1/2- 3 fit the XSmall (blue and orange).  They are available on the Swim to Win website (link below) in many sizes and my price was $12.99/each with free shipping.  Try these for your little swimmer - happy snorkeling!
