An adult black bear swam from Camano Island to Whidbey Island a couple of weeks ago. After wandering the island for a week he swam across Deception Pass to Fidalgo Island.

Bears are good swimmers and I have seen them cut across a lake to save a long walk around the shore. (as far as I could tell that was why)
They can swim pretty fast too.
Bears are awesome creatures

While canoeing and kayaking in Canada we often saw bears swimming across lakes. I once saw one swim across the Hoh in high water near Lewis Meadow.
