What are ear plugs for snorkeling?
Snorkeling ear plugs are designed to keep water out of your ears while you are snorkeling. They work by creating a seal around your ear canal that prevents water from getting in. Many people find that this type of ear plug is more comfortable than traditional foam ear plugs, and they are also less likely to fall out.
How do ear plugs for snorkeling work?
There are two types of ear plugs for snorkeling, one is a universal fit ear plug that you roll down and insert into your ear canal. The other type is a flanged ear plug that has a soft silicone end that forms a seal in your ear canal. Both types work by keeping water out of your ear canal while you are snorkeling.
The universal fit ear plugs are made of a soft foam material that expands when you roll them down into your ear canal. Once they expand, they form a seal that prevents water from entering your ear canal. The flanged ear plugs are made of a soft silicone material that forms a seal in your ear canal when you press it into place.
Both types of ear plugs for snorkeling will block out noise from the water so you can concentrate on enjoying the underwater scenery. In addition, both types will protect your ears from the pressure changes that occur when you descend into the water.
How to choose ear plugs for snorkeling?
When choosing ear plugs for snorkeling, it is important to consider both comfort and fit. Look for ear plugs that are made from soft, comfortable materials that will conform to the shape of your ear and create a tight seal. If you have trouble keep ear plugs in place, look for ear plugs that come with a strap or other attachment that will help keep them in place while you are swimming. It is also important to choose ear plugs that will not block out all noise. While you want to be able to hear your guide or any other swimmers nearby, you also want to be able to enjoy the underwater sounds of the fish and waves.
How to use ear plugs for snorkeling?
If you don’t want to get water in your ears while snorkeling, you need to use ear plugs. Ear plugs for snorkeling are different from the ones used for swimming. Swimming ear plugs are not advisable for snorkeling as they tend to fall off when you dive underwater. There are a few types of ear plugs available in the market that are specifically designed for snorkeling. You need to choose the right type of ear plug so that it fits snugly into your ear and doesn’t fall off.

- Wet the ear plug with clean water. This will help it to expand and fit snugly into your ear canal.
- Roll the ear plug between your thumb and first finger until it forms a narrow cylinder.
