the meaning of diving?
When you say you dive into the sea, does it usually mean that you go under the surface of the sea?
When I want to mean that I jump into the sea water, can I say I dive into the sea?

there are two similar uses. To dive into refers to jumping head first into. to dive in refers to immersion, and thus you would be going underwater for a while, on purpose (not solely because, as with diving into, you don't have a choice).
If you talk about water diving, you ought to give some idea whether you mean diving into water or under water.

Dive means head first. A controlled entry. Jump into could be any form of entry.

Diving means to jump in the water head first.
Jumping means feet first.
See the difference?

You dive into the sea head-first. Maybe with your arms out in front of you. If you don't go into the water head-first, then you're not diving, you're jumping.
