His girlfriend Kenesha Antoine posted on her Facebook page footage of Steven Weber proposing to her through the window of their underwater hotel room at the luxury Manta Resort in Zanzibar.
"You never emerged from those depths so you never got to hear my answer, 'Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!'," she wrote on Friday in a post confirming his death.
Her video shows Weber swimming up to the window, and pressing a handwritten note against it which read: "I can't hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you, but everything I love about you I love more every day. Will you please be my wife, marry me."
He then pulled out a ring as Antoine squealed with joy while filming.
It is unclear what went wrong during the proposal at Pemba Island, a popular honeymoon destination.
"We never got to embrace and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together, as the best day of our lives turned into the worst, in the cruelest twist of fate imaginable," Antoine wrote.
"Knowing him, always quick with an off-colour joke, he's probably entertaining someone with a story about how he royally screwed up that proposal and died while being extra."
Manta CEO Matthew Saus confirmed to AFP in an email on Sunday that "a male guest tragically drowned while freediving alone outside the underwater room" on Thursday.
"The accident is currently under investigation by the local Zanzibar police authority."
