"They Know to swim" wouldn't make sound right to a native English speaker. In the sense of I have have the knowledge and skill of swimming. "They know how to swim" would be correct.
I don't know if you remember Bo Jackson and "Bo Knows..." We could say "They know swimming" But Swimming would be understood as a noun... Bo Knows Baseball.
"They know to swim." like The baby turtle, after hatching know to walk to the ocean. In that sense, I would use a verb like "need". eles sabem que precisam nadar.
That's a good question
