Getting the Aqua Affinity enchantment for your helmet in Minecraft is the same process as other enchantments. While there’s a small chance you’ll be able to find it in random chests around the world or drop it from enemies carrying one, you’re much more likely to get it by finding or crafting a daily enchantment with Aqua Affinity attached.
Is Aqua’s affinity better than breath?
Breathing in Minecraft is an enchanted helmet that plays by extending the breathing time underwater. Not only that, with the use of other commands, you can also use the breath for other armor pieces.
Breathing gives the player an advanced option by extending the breath time underwater by 15 seconds for each enchantment level despite the default 15 second period. Another important benefit of breathing is helping the player not take damage from drowning. So it decreases drowning every second based on the level of enchantment you have on hand. This enchantment allows the player a total of 60 seconds underwater before they begin to drown. Extra 10 seconds allowed with turtle shell.
Minecraft Aqua Affinity
Aqua Affinity in Minecraft is an enchantment that can only be done on helmets. We recommend using a turtle shell, a type of helmet that gives you +2 armor that can be easily crafted by following our guide, in which there is a section dedicated to crafting one.
The Aqua Affinity is here to increase the speed of underwater mining, which makes it very useful for ocean biomes.
What does Aqua Affinity do in Minecraft?
The Aqua Affinity enchantment helps you speed up underwater mining in Minecraft. Without this helmet enchantment, it will take you 5 times as long as it takes to mine on land. Thus, using the Aqua Affinity helmet enchantment allows you to mine underwater at the same speed as on land. But this enchantment does not apply if you are floating.

While you have about a 15% chance of getting Aqua Affinity with a level 1 enchantment, that chance increases to almost 30% when you enchant at level 30. You can also add Aqua Affinity to any type of helmet.
Alternatively, if you have a book enchanted with Aqua Affinity, you can use an anvil to add it to a helmet. In Minecraft Bedrock and Java Editions, you can find random enchanted books in the following locations:
