PLEASE NOTE: A SwimFin should never be used with a baby that cannot control their body yet, and it must NEVER be worn on the front of the body.
When children are having fun in the water, their swimming naturally improves. The innovative and unique design of SwimFin, a teaching aid, flotation device and fun water toy all in one, ensures that your little one's water confidence will improve quickly!
SwimFin is a vertical swimming aid worn high on the back, above the centre of gravity, and expertly weighted to provide support when needed. It allows children to have a more natural swimming position in the water (chin resting just on top of the water while being fully supported in an upright position) as well as unrestricted movement of their arms and legs which helps children to feel more secure and safe in the water.
SwimFin works for all ages and abilities and adjusts to fit all sizes with two elasticated hook-and-loop straps. Safe for ages 18 months and up and when fit properly, SwimFin will not slip off or tip swimmers forwards or backwards.
If your child has sensitive skin, it is advisable to have them wear a t-shirt or one of our UV Rash Tops underneath the fin.
Little ones feel comfortable and secure when they are wearing their SwimFin, which solves the challenge of water wobbles before they even pop up! Schedule in plenty of land and bath practice before taking the plunge in your local pool or seaside venue and you will find that your child is ready for a fintastic time when the open water calls.

A beginner’s body is lower in the water and the SwimFin is more submerged, offering more uplift and support. The arms are left free for propulsion through the water.
As confidence and ability grow, the body position will improve, SwimFin will raise out of the water as less support is required.
In a totally horizontal position, SwimFin is almost completely out of the water offering very little or no support at all and because it is streamlined will not impede movement through the water.
SwimFin gives maximum support whilst encouraging balance without the need for additional buoyancy aids and easily assists the user to rotate onto the front & regain a safe upright or vertical position.
SwimFin has won many international awards and is endorsed by several swimming governing bodies, including the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK)! So get swimming and feel the magic 🐋
