Drowning/to drown = afogar, matar por afogamento - i.e., to die in the water because you are unable to breathe. So I hope you realize Johannes was just brincando.
We use the words, "swimming underwater" to mean exactly that, swimming underwater.
P.E.: I used to swim underwater all the time. We had a swimming pool in our backyard. I would hold my breath for as long as I could and go as far as I could. I think I once did four "lengths" (two laps) underwater in our swimming pool. It is actually very good for developing your lung capacity, I think.
Hope this helps :):):)
