This Minecraft tutorial explains the Dolphin’s Grace effect with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.


The Dolphin’s Grace effect is a status effect that increases your swimming speed. In Java Edition, players will get the Dolphin’s Grace status effect. However, in Bedrock Edition (which consists of Pocket Edition, Windows 10 Edition, Xbox One Edition, PS4, Nintendo Switch Edition) players will experience increased swimming speed without the Dolphin’s Grace status effect appearing.

There are levels of Dolphin’s Grace such as Dolphin’s Grace II, Dolphin’s Grace III, Dolphin’s Grace IV and so on. The higher the level of Dolphin’s Grace, the faster you will swim underwater.

Icon and Particle Effects

When you have the Dolphin’s Grace effect, the following icon will appear in the top right corner of your screen:

You will also see particle effects floating around you. In the latest version of Minecraft, these particle effects will be gray.

When the Dolphin’s Grace effect wears off, the icon and particle effects will disappear. You will be back to your normal status.


Depending on how you get the effect, the duration of the Dolphin’s Grace effect will be different. To see how much time is remaining for the effect, go to your inventory menu.

In this example, it says 0:52 under Dolphin’s Grace so this means that there is 52 seconds remaining of the Dolphin’s Grace effect.
