If you are interested in playing the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, you need to learn how to swim underwater. This is a key feature in the game that allows players to explore areas that are otherwise impossible to reach.

Before you can dive into the water, you’ll need to collect Water Dragon’s Scale. You can find this item in the Faron Woods. You can then use it to switch to third-person view and dive underwater. It’s also important to keep your oxygen meter full and to swim towards bubbles in the water.

After you collect this item, you can then start exploring the island of Hyrule. You will need to dive into the water to locate hidden areas and find treasures. However, you will need to invest some stamina in order to travel to the most difficult dungeons in the game.

There are other underwater regions in the game, including the Island Sanctuary. These areas contain resources like Island Coral and Island Squid. For the most part, however, they are not easily accessible. To access them, you will need to dive into the water and collect air bubbles. When you find a bubble, you will need to swim back up to the surface and refill your air meter.

In addition to the Water Dragon’s Scale, you will need to dive into the water to gain access to the Island Sanctuary. This area contains various types of resources, including Islefish, Island Laver, and Island Jellyfish.
