I agree. At least 85 F. That way, when I exit the water, the air temp doesn't feel too cold.

I like water temp at 82-84 degrees F.

Probably around 75°F/24°C water temp and 80°F/27°C air temp for the minimum comfort level. I once swum in the edges of San Diego Bay in August with an air temp around 80°F, but I'm not sure what the water temp was. It wasn't too cold, tho. I've also been swimming the pool in Chapel Hill in late May or early June, and that was chilly. But swimming in the ocean off the NC coast in late June is fine, with water temperatures in the mid-upper 70s°F/mid 20s°C. I actually think that's close to the perfect temperature.

The water temperature should be at least 70 F and the air temperature at least 65 F to swim.

I did the Polar Plunge for charity in Lake Ontario and also in Lake Superior. Both cold as hell that time of year but Lake Ontario felt almost cozy compared to how freaking cold Superior was...

Anything 65F and warmer is totally fine. Feels chilly at first but your body quickly adjusts. Anything above 70F is great.
