Dimitri is first found shortly after finishing the Moonlit Grotto (the third dungeon). When riding Dimitri, you will be able to swim in many areas that you were not able to previously (such as rough water). Dimitri is also able to swim up waterfalls, and attack while swimming by using the A button.
