If you were wise enough to keep your ears above water and close to the boat to avoid the music cutting off in the middle of a Cannibal Corpse song, would it be a reasonable decision to attempt such a brave move?
The airpods were never advertised as waterproof. With the amount of holes in the airpods I think it would be result in liquid damage. They are ok to workout in because your ears are not a major source of sweat glands. Swimming/snorkeling/diving will kill the airpods.
