    Preliminary information

    Underwater exploration in Minecraft is an activity that can be very profitable, as it allows you to find lots of hidden treasures and get very useful items. For example, in the depths you can find ruins or wrecks, which hide trunks, inside which there can be precious as well as unique objects.



    This operation, however, is limited, since the avatar has only a few seconds available, about twenty, before it begins to lose health points, forcing the player to rise to the surface.

    Although this time may seem sufficient, you must also consider that, as you go deeper and deeper, you have less visibility and are forced to take more time to orient yourself and get an idea of ​​the surrounding environment.

    For this reason, what you will have to do is follow the instructions that I will give you in the next chapters, in order to be able to extend your stay underwater, without any risk.

    How to breathe underwater in Minecraft

    If you want to know how to breathe underwater in minecraft, I advise you to carefully read the suggestions that I will give you in the next chapters.

    Potion for breathing underwater

    If you are looking for a method to succeed in breathe underwater on minecraft, you can rely on the use of potions. Among these, the only one that can make sure that you can reach your goal is the one called Potion of Aquatic Breathing.


    This potion is available in different versions: the one lasting 3 minutes and the one that, on the other hand, allows you to breathe underwater for 8 minutes. Obviously you will have to get several materials and suitable tools to create this potion: I will provide you with all the information you need in the next paragraphs.


    First, you need to build a Still, an essential item for crafting potions. To make one, you need it 1 unit of Rod of Blaze e 3 units of Crushed Stone, to be placed on a workbench. There Rod of Blaze you can find it by defeating the Blaze, of the creatures you find in the Nether.

    Next, you will need some Ampoules, which will contain the potion you are about to create. This item can be easily obtained by putting together 3 unit of Glass in a bank gives lavoro. Not sure where to find glass? I told you about it in detail in this guide of mine.

    At this point, you have to fill the ampoules with water: you can do this simply by interacting with them on the surface of a block of water or by using a Cauldron, previously filled with this liquid with the help of a Bucket.

    Now that you've got theCruet of water, you must place it inside theStill, in one of the three slots reserved for this object, which you find on its screen. To activate the reaction, you need a reagent and a fuel.


    As for the latter, you need to get the Blaze powder, which you can easily obtain by dismantling, in a workbench, a Rod of Blaze. As a reagent, however, you must use the Nether's Verruca. As you can well guess, it is an object that you find in the Nether: to be exact it is a plant that you can easily identify in this place.

    By joining a Nether's Verruca together with aCruet of water, you will make one Strange Potion. This potion is the basis for obtaining one Potion of Aquatic Breathing. Therefore, leaving the Strange location inside theStill, use the top slot of this to add a Puffer fish as a reagent. You can find these cute little fish in the ocean.


    If you followed my directions to the letter, you will have realized the Potion of Aquatic Breathing, which will help you breathe underwater for 3 minutes. If you place the latter inside theStill, using the Redstone dust as a reagent, you will get a more potent potion, with an effect duration of 8 minutes.

    Breathing Enchantment

    Another useful piece of advice I can give you to succeed in breathe underwater on minecraft, is to enchant a helmet with the bonus Breathing. This particular effect allows you to extend your stay underwater for 15 seconds longer than normal, at level 1 of the enchantment, up to a maximum of 45 seconds, for level 3.


    All you need is any one Elmo it's a'Anvil, the tool that allows you to apply this bonus, in the form of Enchanted Book, to the equipment. As for theAnvil, you can create one with 3 units Iron block e 4 unit of Iron Bar. If you have any doubts about it, you can consult my guide dedicated to the creation of this tool.

    To obtain the book containing this effect, I suggest you consult, instead, what I explained to you in my guide on how to make a book on Minecraft. When you have everything you need, open the interface of theAnvil and insert, in the appropriate slots, theElmo and Enchanted Book with the bonus Breathing.

    Conducted Energy Enhancement

    Another solution that you can put into practice is to use the bonus Conducted Energy, which you can obtain by building a specific structure in the seabed. You must know, in fact, that there is an object, called Conducted, which applies this bonus to the nearby player, ensuring they can breathe and see better underwater, as well as being able to dig faster.


    To use the bonus Conducted Energy, you must first have among the 16 and 42 blocks of Prismarino, a material found near ocean ruins, and a Conducted. The latter is obtained in a workbench, joining 1 unit of Heart of the Sea e 8 units of Nautilus Shells.

    As regards the Heart of the Sea, this can rarely be found in trunks buried in the ocean, while the Nautilus shells obtained from fishing, from zombies in the water, or by exchanging them for emeralds from a wandering trader.

    Once you get the Conducted, you have to build the structure to activate the bonus Conducted Energy. As I told you, you need a variable number of Prismarino blocks, as this bonus can be applied 16 blocks away for every 7 blocks used in the structure. You can, therefore, get a bonus that covers up to 96 blocks away.

    First, place 9 units of blocks on the backdrop, in order to create a cross. Once this is done, place at the ends 1 block unit on each. At this point, place a square structure on the next higher level, consisting of 16 blocks.

    After doing this, you need to build the next two levels in a mirror image, adding i 4 blocks on the sides of the square and i 9 blocks to make the cross. You will then find yourself in front of a structure, inside which, exactly in the center, you have to place the Conducted. Therefore, use any block, just to perform this procedure.

    If you have carried out to the letter what I have explained to you in the previous paragraphs, you will have built the structure for the Conducted, which will be activated immediately and the bonus will be applied Conducted Energy within its range, granting you all the effects I told you about at the beginning of this chapter.

    Activate Creative mode

    Another quick fix you can put into practice to breathe underwater is to use the mode Creative. In this specific game mode, in fact, the avatar is immortal and will not suffer any negative effects when it is underwater, being able to remain in apnea without risking negative consequences.

    You can create a new game in mode Creative, directly from the world creation menu. If you already have a world started in Survival, you can change it using the command console: to do this, press the key Esc during a game and, in the menu that is shown to you, click on the button Open in LAN. At this point, press the button commands, in order to display the wording Yes, and confirm the operation by pressing the key Start the world on LAN.

    Now, press the button T, to open the chat, and type the command / gamemode creative, I follow the pressure of the tasto Submit. Doing so will activate the mode Creative and you can safely swim underwater, without worrying about the oxygen level. You can return to the mode at any time Survival, using the command / gamemode survival.

    Alternative solutions for breathing underwater

    In addition to the solutions I told you about in the previous chapters, other quick and easy-to-use tips for breathing underwater in Minecraft may come in handy.

    An example is to use a simple one port, to be placed on the backdrop, so that an air pocket is created between the water blocks, which allows your avatar to catch his breath. To build a door, you simply need to place 6 units of Wooden Planks in a workbench.

    In fact, you can use any object that does not fully occupy the space of a block, so that an air pocket can form between the water and the object itself. For example the banners they can be useful for the same purpose, by placing one on top of the other.
