For this achievement you must pass the Undercaves without dying once.

In order to accomplish this you must utilize your save feature, making sure from the beginning of the level that you save the game in the first save slot. This way, if you have to start from the beginning you can and obviously use the rest of the save slots for your progression through the level. If you include the prologue the Undercaves would be considered the third level.

There's only a few ways that you can die in this level. You can die either by lack of air, jellyfish, pufferfish, the tentacle of the octopus and accidental contact with the terrains more sharper features. To replenish your health you can always eat some of the smaller fish or use your sonar on certain shells located on the ocean floor that will release a small bubble of life. Stay vigilante and remember where your air pockets are as you travel through the passageways. If you need a reference to where you're at you can always hold down your sonar button (Default-B), as long as you are pointed in one direction and this will bring up a mini map. Jellyfish and pufferfish can easily be dispatched by using your dash attack (Default X) but I recommend you avoid them entirely if possible. The octopus is located at the top right of the map and to prevent his attacks, simply pass by him very slowly. Doing this will get you the following achievement.
