Swimming is a game mechanic which allows a Player to move in any direction (horizontally or vertically) while underwater in a Minecraft world. A player may also swim across the Water's surface.

This mechanic functions the same way when swimming in Lava, but if playing in survival mode, a player will not be able to stay in the lava for long before they burn to death.

Overview

In PC/Mac clients, swimming is achieved by pressing (or holding down) space. Swimming is necessary to survive in nearly every environment containing water, as only two Blocks-deep of water are needed for a player to drown.

Players move slower when swimming than on land.
