There's a handheld jet thruster which takes the hard work out of swimming

This portable, handheld water device propels you through the water while you swim. You can use it while diving or snorkelling, or attach it to a kayak or paddleboard.

It can push close to 100 gallons of water per minute and can reach speeds of 7 mph.
