Ordinary scuba fins are not designed for walking, and putting them on before entering the water has traditionally presented a challenge for both novice and experienced
divers. Finally, with the invention of Flipfins Inc. Amphibian® Flipfins®
, the days of dragging your fins in and out of the water are finally over! Amphibian® scuba fins
are a totally new class of dive fins and the world's only fins that allow for easy transition from walk to dive mode.
Flipfins® are uniquely designed to be strapped on prior to entering the water and removed after exiting. They allow divers to walk fully geared into the water, move freely on the
dive boat, climb ladders and do other movements as easy as wearing ordinary shoes. Two-piece fin brought together by a special Aqua-Hinge™ allows the webbed blades to fold up out of the way to
allow full mobility out of the water and click down with a first kick once in the water.
While diving, no other fin can match the power and comfort provided by Amphibian® scuba fins, which features a prominent central web configuration that contributes to increased
propulsion and reduced load required during sustained kicking.
This simple concept has had a profound effect for Rescue and Special Forces divers for whom getting in and out of the water fast and safe is essential,
not to mention recreational divers who do not want to deal with difficulty and awkwardness of flopping around their boats like a circus clown!

are like shoes when you walk, and like fins
when in the water, cant move very fast up the ladder though, until you get all the way out of the water, then theyre KEWL!!! I was told that I looked like the "Predator" while I was walking around showing them off. I tried on another set of old style fins
and felt like a cave man,,, kinda primitive. I havent had the Flipfins very long, but so far theyre a lot of fun. As far as being functional, I really cant tell if theyre any better, or any worse than average, but it sure is nice to be the first one in the water while everybody else is fiddling around putting fins on." William C.
Envy of the dive boat
"If you are a shore diver or a boat diver
these are for you. There is nothing like being on a dive boat
and having to waddle to the edge with all of your dive gear
. When I put these on and walked around the boat helping the rest of the group don their gear I was the envy of the boat. They have good grip on the soles and snap into place easy. When shore diving they are a little tricky on rocks and have a little more resistance walking in and out of the water. Good propulsion properties moved well even in swift current all around a good buy highly recommend." Andrew B.
"Great fins!! Walk like a man! Easy to kick into position and easy to manuever. The addition of spring straps
is the perfect accessary. Thank you." Michael M.
Nice product works as described
"These worked well on the tenders used to take us to dive site
. Made it easy to move around in the restricted space. Good shin protection when getting back on board. Works well, decent propulsion properties." Doogie H.
"I am new to scuba diving
but really love these fins
. My open water certification
class was held in a pool with 12 other people and my instructors loved my fins
. I will be surprised if many of them dont end up with them. They made moving around the pool and the skills so much easier. I have since taken them to some of the local lakes just for snorkeling
and it is amazing when I get to the island I am swimming for I just walk up on the beach while everyone else is fighting their fins
and trying to take them off. Incredible product!" Brian S.
"This is a great fin
. Powerful, comfotable, and most of all EASY TO WALK IN." Jason "fishman" S.
"Very well made fin. Takes some practice"
"Very well made fin, a little wierd to look at, but they acutally WORK!! Love being able to walk in the fins
. The release catch is stiff and requires a little practice to get use to." Capt Tim
