Grizzly Bears are very comfortable in the water. When the salmon are running they spend a great deal of time in the river often swimming across it multiple times. They are also excellent long distance swimmers easily swimming across Knight Inlet, which is approximately 1 mile wide. Thanks to Britt for the picture
