My wife and I both were one white and one yellow fin. That way in a group of people in wetsuits we can always find each other.

I like this idea, we had a dive master in Roatan Honduras that had two color fins. Good idea easy to follow

White, yellow, and pink are easy to spot. I also like to accent my wife's regulator hose protectors as an easier way to see her from behind.

If visibility is what you're looking for, white, yellow and pink are your colors. On a cenote dive in Mexico, the diver in front of me had bright pink fins, and when we passed through a super-cloudy halocline layer when visibility dropped to just a foot or two, those pink fins were the only thing I could see!

     On my last dive trip, maybe a quarter of our group had either yellow or white fins. If I hadn't started on a black/blue theme from the time I began buying gear, I might have chosen pink fins myself.

I have as much pink gear (including fins) as I can. It is very visible even in low viz. My dive buddy's fins are blue and his gear is kind of ordinary, blue/black. In a group of divers I find myself having to look closely to find him among other divers in similar gear.

We have seen dive masters that use two different colors of fins and it is very helpful to identify them in the water - a great idea.

Thanks for posting, your right about having a dive buddy who is easy to locate, makes life a lot easier. Dive safe and have fun.

Pink fins, hose covers, wetsuit. Always easy to find by others but stay within 5 feet of my buddy.

Yellow or yellow-green can be seen the farthest - both in the water and from the surface.
