Dolphin's Grace is a status effect that increases the player's swimming speed when a dolphin is nearby and following the player.


Dolphin's Grace causes the player to swim significantly faster; Dolphin's Grace on its own allows you to travel 9.8 m/s underwater without Depth Strider, making it faster than a boat. Combining it with Depth Strider, players are able to travel at much higher speeds, adding 8.983 m/s per level. Potentially higher speeds are possible by adding Soul Soil underwater and using Soul Speed-enchanted boots, along with Speed II. The effect also allows for quicker, sharper turning while swimming.

Depth Strider level Speed(m/s)
None 9.800
I 18.783
II 27.767
III 36.75

This status effect is exclusive to Java Edition. Although players in Bedrock Edition are also able to experience a significant gain in speed if the same conditions as in Java Edition are met, it is not considered a status effect as no effect icon is shown.

Dolphins do not give this effect to players with the Invisibility effect. However, dolphins do apply the effect to players with any armor piece or headgear equipped.
