Whether swimming will "bulk" you up depends on the type of swimming you are doing.
MOST recreational swimmers get in the pool and swim 2km w/out stop, at a pace which is as fast as they can reasonably swim without stopping. The focus is on going the distance.
This sort of swimming will not succeed in muscle gain at all. In fact, this exercise is the most likely to cause swimming related repetitive injuries (if done in large quantities) besides being the most boring. This training is pointless for increasing speed or overall fitness. But it is great if you want to put on a layer of fat.
If you want to get muscle, work on technique. If you want to build strength/speed, do intervals.
