The Tiger Twins are twin brothers Jonathon di Donato and James di Donato who are both open water swimmers and butterfly specialists. They swam 40.6 miles in 20 hours 6 minutes in an attempt to swim 60 miles from the Bahamas to Palm Beach County, Florida in 1985. They also once attempted a crossing of the English Channel doing butterfly in 1981 and did a 10-mile swim in the Atlantic Ocean off Florida.

In 1983, Jonathan and James, 29-year-old identical twin swim instructors, swam the 28 miles around Manhattan in nine hours and 43 minutes to become the first to circumnavigate the island doing the butterfly.
