They sell drops for "swimmers ear". I wouldn't put anything else in the ear though. The drops are sold around the same place as visine, and eye drops. The "swimmers ear drops" dry up excess water/moisture and work great.
Im sure you have NOT tried this one.... i know this sounds wierd but it works just add WATER. Fill your ear with more water and when you drain your ear the water that is stuck will come out with the water you just added
Use a mixture of 1 part rubbing alcohol and 2 parts water. Use a dropper is you have one and put some of the mixture in your ear. You will know when it tilt your head and let it out after you "hear/feel" the mixture meet with the water stuck in your ear. It doesn't hurt and you probably have rubbing alcohol in your medicine cabinet.

Ok. My husband thinks this remedy is crazy, but it works for me! When I was a kid my parents were fanatical about not using Q-tips to get water out of my ears. It can puncture the eardrum. So, my dad told me to get one Kleenex, open it up (so it is 2-ply not 4), and roll one corner into a point then put it into my ear to absorb the water. Sometimes I pinch of the tippy top off of the tissue because feels like it is super-sensitive inside my ear. Also, it should look similar to a wet towel twisted up to swat at your little brother! :0 Because you are using tissue, when you push it into your ear, it will bend if it hits anything. Safe? I've been doing it for nearly 40 years, and the only thing that happened was the water left my ear on the tissue. Also, it sometimes it feels like an itchy nose getting scratched after a few minutes of not being able to scratch the itch!
Now here's what ya do! tilt your head towards the ear that has water in it. then get your hand. then hit the side of your head on the ear that doesn't have water in it. :D now if that doesn't work try these other answer's and if none of em work jump in a volcano and the water should evaporate if not all of the liquid in your body.. oh and everything else.. should go away. NO PROBLEMS EVERRR AGAIN :D
