Water sustains us, but it does a lot more than that. It provides challenges that many enjoy facing; taking on the water by boat, or by swimming for example. From Magellan’s explorations, to swimming the English Channel, to the Titanic, there have been those who have been successful in taking on the water, and those who have failed.

Swimming is a popular way to take on the water. With enough skill and practice, swimmers can reach top speeds, that vary by stroke. Some animals are also faster than others.

Backyard Ocean invites you to take a swim through time to see some of the seemingly impossible feats humans have achieved with water, and the speediest animals of all times.
