How to dive underwater in Hogwarts Legacy

You can swim normally in Hogwarts Legacy, whenever you approach a body of water. However, there are some quests that are swimming-centric, which can produce in-game prompts that say "dive." You'll see bubbles appearing in the waterm and you'll need to press the square button (for PlayStation users) to dive underwater. Your character will briefly go underwater but your camera won't.

Some of the loot that you can find are a plaid blazer, an ensemble, or a palmette scarf. In the Lost Astrolable side quest, you’ll recover the Pinch-Smedley family astrolabe for Grace in the Black Lake.

Furthermore, if you want to explore every lake in Hogwarts Legacy and find all the loot, you can fly on your broomstick or mount to spot all the swirling points you can interact with, and dive to collect the loot. This could save you time instead of just diving randomly to find the loot spots.
