While exploring keep a keen eye out, once you get close enough to one of these points of interest you’ll notice a light and a button to interact with it will become available. Another factor to consider is your breath gauge, should it run out, your character will automatically begin to swim to the surface.

Don’t give up though, as a little careful planning and some practice will go a long ways to helping you get the hang of it!
