Cressi Fins - Palau Snorkelling
Cressi Palau Snorkelling Fins
Palau opens the way for a new type of snorkelling and swimming fin. In actual fact, it has been designed for two specific needs.
The first was to have a foot pocket that could easily adapt to at least three or four consecutive sizes so that the same fin could be used by all the members of a family, or by a group of friends or easily rented out in a diving centre or on a charter boat, without requiring an infinite number of sizes.
The second need was that of guaranteeing extreme comfort and an easy fit even if this is a fin with a strap to be worn with bare feet.
The result is a fin that is extraordinarily practical, that adapts to practically any foot and that allows for very quick fitting in any situation.
The blade is made from a light yet responsive material that assures a kick that is fluid, effortless yet at the same time quite powerful.
The strap has a strong ring on the upper part to allow reversal of the strap itself or to fix the fins to the body or the equipment.
Palau is available in 5 sizes that cover shoe sizes from 32 to 47.

Cressi was originally founded in 1946 as a diving company rich in innovation and product development. An entirely family owned and operated Italian brand, Cressi was the first company to produce items such as the diving mask with dedicated nose pocket, and the adjustable open heel fins. Since the beginning, all Cressi products have been designed and manufactured in Italy using Cressi’s own machinery and equipment. To this day, Cressi remains an innovator in product research, development and manufacturing. Cressi is a full 360 degree water sports company, as it manufactures its own products for Diving, Spear Fishing, Snorkeling and Swimming.
The first Cressi swimming goggles were produced in the 1950’s and were called the Nuoto Goggles. Throughout the course of the company’s history, Cressi has continued to improve and expand their swimming product collection. In fact, many European swimming champions have used Cressi swimming products such as short swim fins and goggles during the 1950's and 1960's. Since the company’s beginning, Swim products have been an important part of the Cressi product range.
In 2005, Cressi established a separate brand specifically for swimming products. Cressi Swim was established and offered a full range of swimming products and apparel including swim masks, goggles, fins, caps, swim suits and accessories. In recent years, products such as the Cobra Swim Mask and the Palau Short Adjustable fins represent Cressi’s continued emphasis on product development and innovation. In 2009, the Cressi Swim website was launched as a place where people all over the world can find information about the entire Cressi Swim line on the internet.
