duck dives(dive) into the water

In this picture (link2), the duck in the bottom of the picture was swimming on the water, then it put its head in the water suddenly, can I describe this fast movement as "the duck is diving into the water" ?

Thank you.

    You can't say "into the water," because the duck was already in the water. I would probably say it dove below the surface of the water.
