Maui Snorkeling Tips – Use Anti-Fog Gel!
Every snorkeler we've ever met enjoys seeing fish and they all share the desire to see more. To better your chances, here's an invaluable Maui Snorkel Blog Tip: Get yourself a bottle of anti-fog gel. It'll extend your time in the water and you'll see everything better—guaranteed.
Whenever we advise snorkelers about equipment, anti-fog gel is a serious "must have" on our list. It's a fantastic product and makes any snorkel outing better. A thin coat applied to the inside of your lenses will keep them fog free and allow you to see clearly underwater for a much longer period of time. A few people may disagree or suggest "spit works just as well," but we beg to differ. We've spent countless hours exploring Maui's underwater world and a bottle of anti-fog gel has been our constant companion. As penny-pinchers we know where to cut costs, and this isn’t one of them. A small dab on each lens is all you need, so that little bottle of gel can provide several years worth of snorkeling.
If you need further convincing, here's a fact: the temperature difference between the warm air inside your snorkel mask and the cool water outside create ideal conditions for fog. A little anti-fog gel combats this natural tendency and will keep your mask clear for at least an hour, maybe two.
Our personal preference is Sea Gold Anti-Fog Gel. If you're in Maui you can find it at your nearest Maui Dive Shop. We encourage you to stop by and pick up a bottle—you'll find it's worth every penny. They also carry our book, Mask, Fins & Snorkel: The Adventure Guide to Maui's Best Snorkeling. So if you don't have a copy, you can pick one up while you're in Maui!
