About Aqua Lung Hotshot Open Heel Fins

The ultimate warm-water travel companion, the HotShot delivers the power needed for scuba diving in a compact fin that packs easily into carry-on luggage. A lightweight, techno-polymer blade incorporates adjustable silicone Power Bands to maximize thrust and bands can be adjusted during the dive to meet changing conditions. Supple foot pockets are designed for use with bare feet and Comfo-straps are buckle-free and self-adjusting. A semi-rigid, techno-polymer blade has an excellent spring effect for maximized thrust. Silicone Power Bands are loaded with energy during the down stroke, which they release prior to the upstroke for a power boost on every kick. Twin-Speed Gear Shift allows each diver to dial in Power Band resistance for their body type or changing diving conditions, and adjustments can be made while wearing the fin.

A Mid-Foot Flex Joint is used to attach the blade to the side of the foot pocket. This maximizes energy transfer from the leg and provides the power of a blade 30% longer. Blade ribs are made of two different elastomeric compounds and provide precise flex control. The top and sides of the foot pocket are soft against bare skin yet allow neoprene socks or thin-soled boots to be worn for thermal protection. Self-adjusting Comfo-straps allow fast donning and eliminate the need for buckles, minimizing drag. Anti-slip rubber pads on the bottom of the foot pocket give traction for moving around on boat decks. Overall length of 20.9" (53 cm) fits easily into carry-on luggage, such as the Departure bag from Deep See. The size regular weighs 3.28 lbs. (1.5 kg). Fins are available in multiple sizes and colors.

Great Fin

Dove with these fins for 3days of 2tank dives in Mexico. Used in moderate current with at time heavy surge. All i can say is they have great power, there small compact fins that imo dont lack a thing. I used them with socks since a small was too tight and regular was a hare loose. They say there supposed to be used without boots but i was worried about rubbing so i went with the socks. i have a solelss pair of 3mil boots and could have used them as well. Im mostly a tropical diver and with t...

Fine, if it fits

This seems like a quality fin, but it runs narrow, and there is no adjustability in the heel. They would be worth a try anyway, for someone with a narrow foot. But in our case, the company is totally nonresponsive to our requests to return them. So I simply cannot recommend the product (or company).

Great for travel


from Bridgewater, NJ, US

I love these fins for travel. They have served me well being light weight. After about 1 year of regular diving use the fin straps start tear.


To Small


from Reading, PA, US

I was really hoping these fins would work out. I really wanted a short pair of fins for traveling. But the Large/X-Large really aren't X-Large. I wear a size 13 and my toes pressed hard against the bottom of the boot and the top of the boot pressed painfully hard on the top of my foot. And as has been stated in other reviews, There is no way you can wear a scuba shoe with these. It's a shame, If they actually made a size X-Large these would be a nice fin. I also think the power bands are kind of gimmicky. I didn't notice an appreciable difference in tension in either position. After all, How could moving that band 1cm make a difference. That being said I didn't hook them up to any kind of measureing device, so what do I know. Unfortunately I'm going to have to send these back. If they decide to make them in an X-Large I will definitely give them another try.

Great fins


from Muskegon, MI, US

I loved these fins, but had to return them after only trying them on. They are not for wide feet size 12.


Aqualung hotshots.


from Austin, TX, US

I really like these fins. They are compact for travel but still provide good power for tropical diving. They may not have the thrust for heavy-duty technical or arduous cold water diving. I've had mine for 4 years and used them in Hawaii and the Caribbean with no problems and I weigh over 200#.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
HAROLD W  I dive a pair and love them. The new set is a gift. Great for travel !
g c  need light weight fin for a trip. hot shots didn't work - blisters from socks noted here.
GREGORY J  Great travel fins for the tropics- small and light so are easily packed, and very comfortable.
Lindsay D  Open heel fin wearable without a boot, customer service was excellent in helping to make a decision
HENRY S  I choose these fins for comfort and travel they are awesome! I couldn't be happier.
RICK T  Good travel fin, and also good blade fin for my wife.
HEIDI O  recomended from scuba magazine
SCOTT F  Lightweight for travel and comfort for warm water diving. Good reviews in dive magazines.
Shopper  Are the Green and Pink Aqua Lung Hotshots the same as the newer Blue, White color?
KEVIN F  Yes, they are the same aside for color.
Shopper  My wife usually wears a women's size 9. I'm concerned about using these barefooted for a week long dive trip. Do not want blisters! Any one buy these with a thin dive sock or boot?
BRIAN D  I have been using these for 5 years and simply by wearing a thin dive sock, I have never once had a blister or any problems with these fins.
SUZANNE G  No, socks for me. I wear a 9 narrow. They fit like a glove. Love them!
CRAIG J  Both my wife and I use these for snorkeling. I wear a size 9 and my wife wears a size 6. We really like these for the comfort and the elastic heel strap. We usually use these bare footed, but have used light boots when walking in from a beach. Either is very comfortable.
Arpana G  You would want a soft soled dive boot in my opinion. Not a sock 2 or 3mm.
RENAUD V  I have not used them for a whole week but they are quite comfortable even barefoot. With a thin sock (which I have used) it's perfectly comfortable too.
MARK M  Yes... have used these fins with both 6mm boots and 1mm booties. They are a little hard to get off at times with the 6mm, but slide right off with the 1mm (when I want them too, that is)
