What are some things you did to prepare for snorkeling to keep your asthma under control?

Before I do any physical activity, especially snorkeling, I take my albuterol about 15 minutes before the activity to open my lungs and prevent them from constricting. It also helped to wear a wet suit so I didn’t feel the effects of the cold water. The snorkel guides also knew I had asthma and had my medication on deck ready to use in case of emergency, but I ended up doing great!
