Water temperature in September or October

Is it warm enough to swim in the beach in September or October please as that is the only time of the year we can come visit?

Not really swimming weather in sept or oct. It would be more a plunge. However, i paddleboard at Kaiteriteri year round, but dont fall off.

We are planning to be in ATNP the 3rd week in October and are looking to paddle board/ hike/ water taxi through the whole length. Do you suggest a particular starting point? Thank you!
