phobia if slowly sinking down in very deep dark water, not knowing whats under me. or around me

is this a rational fear or irrational phobia?

seems like it would be pretty scary to anyone

It's a pretty common fear. Humans feel most comfortable when there's land under their feet.

It's a bit irrational. But, I have it, too. Deep sea camera footage freaks me out.

I never really liked water but never thought I had a fear of it. One summer I went out on a boat with a slide and it put me deep into the water. Coming up i realized. I dont know how deep this water is, i can't see down into it. I started to feel so paniced. So I guess that when I realized I had that same fear lol.
