Indeed, it depends on how good you are at swimming. Though, there is a chance that you can get a spasm and that's no good.

If you are a fish, an aquatic mammal or jesus then no.
If you lack an estimate of the risk factors and precautionary measures relevant to the body of water, then either you're not as good a swimmer as you think you are, or uninformed and thus ought to rectify that or prepare for the worst.
