they're - contraction for "they are," as in "They're diving on their boat."

there - a place opposite to here, as in "Let's dive over there."

its - belonging to it, as in "The shark showed its teeth." [this is an exception to the use of the apostrophe for possessives; see next entry]

it's - contraction of "it is," as in "It's cold diving during the winter in a wetsuit."

too - overly, as in "It's too damn cold."
