Not better. Different. It's more like which one is more aptly suited for the particular job you want done.

Iman Miles Swim qualification is done in the USMC as well. If you want to become a Marine, you will have to swim.

Iman Miles - not knowing how to swim is okay. I'm sure the same is for the Navy, but in the Marines we were taught how to swim for qualifications. In basic there were several of recruits that couldn't swim or had never even tried to swim. As long as you pay attention to your instructors and perform as they direct, you will be just fine. Just like 90% of basic training, not being able to swim is all in your head.

Iman Miles - I would also suggest that when speaking to a recruiter, let them know your concerns about swimming and request that they take you to learn more on water survival techniques. A good recruiter would most likely jump at this opportunity.
