What is the name of this phobia?

I have a phobia of swimming in water I can't see the bottom of. Im fine in pools but in lakes when the waters seems dark because its deep, im scared to swim in it. Is there a name for this phobia or no?

What ever it's called, you can get rid of that phobia with a session with a good hypnotherapist. That is not a "normal" fear. It's something you picked up along the way. Anything you learn, you can unlearn. The hypnotist can work with you to remove that unnatural fear and you'll be good to go. Check into it.

Aquaphobia is the fear of water in general I believe, so I think it might fall under that :)

Just need to work on your confidence. Perhaps a fear of deep water. As you become a more proficient swimmer you'll lose that.

aquaphobia (The fear of deep water or large amounts of it) Hydrophobia being the fear of water in general and Thalassophobia being the phobia of seas and oceans.

Thalassophobia is the fear of swimming in large bodies of water.

I think this is simply fear or extreme caution when faced with the unknown. There is no name for it per se. It is present in almost all living things. It's a good thing. Intermittent, short exposures to deep,dark water should desensitize you to these situations.

It's perfectly normal to fear cloudy waters. I love fresh water lakes swimming but I need to be able to see a ways down.
