A Movie clip for 30 seconds: Two Polar bears are pushing and swimming. Please lower the volume, because there are loud cheers by the spectator-children.
There are Three Polar Bears at San Diego Zoo. You can take a Skyfari® aerial tram from the left side of the entrance to get to Polar Bear House. It takes about 5 minutes plus the waiting time for the tram. The aerial tram shakes a little with winds up in the sky. I recommend taking a bus or walking there if you are afraid of heights. Two of three Polar bears, Kalluk, Chinook, and Tatqiq will be there to see you, according to the San Diego Zoo blog.
Polar Bears: The polar bear is the largest predator that lives on land. Adult males weigh 352–680 kg (780–1,500 lb) and measure 2.4–3 m (7.9–9.8 ft) in length. Adult females are roughly half the size of males and normally weigh 150–249 kg (330–550 lb), measuring 1.8–2.4 metres (5.9–7.9 ft) in length.
The Arctic is home to millions of seals, which become prey. Polar bears hunt primarily at the interface between ice, water, and air; they only rarely catch seals on land or in open water.
Polar bears are excellent swimmers and have been seen in open Arctic waters as far as 200 mi (320 km) from land. Their 12 cm (4.7 in) layer of fat adds buoyancy and insulates them from the cold. Polar bears can swim 6 miles/hour.

When we visited the Polar bear house, one was diving and swimming. Another was resting in the back on the surface. Those two kept changing positions, diving, swimming, and resting....
There were a few dozens of elementary school students in a group. They were cheering and screeming when those big Polar bears were diving, swimming, and pushing.
I took a short video clip of those two Polar bears swimming in the pool above. Enjoy the video clip and some more photos.
