Actually the T-Rex didn't really swim in the novel. Grant wasn't sure if he knows anything about the dinosaur's ability to swim.
But then it turned out that the tyrannosaur was walking in the lagoon and just the upper part of its head and the spikes along the back and tail were visible.
It reminded Grant of a crocodile.
As most of the animals are able to swim it should be very likely that dinosaurs could swim too. But the point in the game was clearly the distance.
