To answer you question, you don’t. Essentially water movement is dictated by a specific shard. This shard is called Aqua Stream. It must be farmed off of the Deeseama enemy type you can find in the waters of the Forbidden Underground Waterway. To advance the story you will need to acquire this shard.

These enemy types can be found in the following rooms highlighted on the map above. To farm for this shard simply kill Deeseama and do this over and over until the shard drops. Once the shard drops you will need to equip it in order to use it underwater. It works akin to other Directional Shards.

Hopefully this helps you solve the question of how to swim. Let me know of any questions you have in the comments below.
