Swimming in Hogwarts Legacy Explained

Indeed, one of the ways players can get to explore in Hogwarts Legacy is by swimming in various water bodies found around the castle and in the huge map. Anytime you are near water, you can simply jump in and swim around, hopefully without meeting hostile creatures that happen to be guarding their territory.

More importantly, there are treasures to be found when swimming. Look out for swirls of water that are an aberration compared to the calmness around them. Get near, and interact with it to grab some valuable loot, and you might just get a new piece of gear that can increase your defense or offense.
