The following form with "to go" sounds a bit strange to me:

His friends in the water didn't want to go near him and be pulled under.

Shall I better use: to move or to come or to get, as following?


His friends in the water didn't want to move near him and be pulled under.

His friends in the water didn't want to come near him and be pulled under.

His friends in the water didn't want to get near him and be pulled under.


Thank you in advance!

It is perfectly natural, idiomatic English. It is what I would say!

No. to go or to get are both good choices. I'd use one of those and not the others.
