Ian - there is no substitute for swimming and especially finning (snorkeling). As a rescue swimmer you'll rarely (if ever) enter the water without at least mask and fins. Concentrate on stamina (long swims) split with sprints. Find a pair of fins that you are comfortable with - the best for diving would not be the best for finning. Crossfit training will round out your strength and endurance. Finally, talk to the agency that you plan to train with for Rescue swimmer - and ask for their advise for specific exercises.
