    During the test of Thievery, you'll be thrown into the ocean (as you exit Governor Marley's mansion). Since Guywood can hold his breath for ten minutes (his only marketable skill, according to his conversations with the pirates), you'll have to wait this one out.

    Just don't do anything for the full ten minutes, watch poor Guybrush die, and collect your achievement. This is also the only way you can actually die in the game, if you were wondering. Go ahead and "retry", now.

    McGubbaloI accidentally got out of the water. So I saved and reloaded the last autosave. That worked too.

    You will get to a point in the game where you steal the Idol from the mansion, the guard will throw you into the water. Before this happens after talking to Elane make sure you save the game so you can reload after. When you try to go outside you are thrown into water by the guard, all you have to do is wait for 10 minutes and the achievement will unlock. Make sure you save first though as you will need to reload your game.
