Depending on location, anywhere between 51/53 F to 74/5 F (10C to 24C) If you look at GE you'll see that Vancouver island forms a huge 'breakwater' on the coast. Tides flood in around both top and bottom, therefore the water in the middle more or less 'stays put' and gets well warmed by the summer sun. This is a large part of the appeal of Desolation Sound.

North of the tidal rapids the water temp drops dramatically, to the point that the cabin is often colder below than the outside temp in the morning... but the scenery is more dramatic, and normally it's less crowded (not seemingly so this past summer)
