Water Temp last two weeks of October?

My husband and I are coming to Gulf Shores From Oct 19-Oct 30th and I'm wondering about water temperatures? Is it still going to be warm enough to get in the water? We've never gone this late. Thank you!

Best time of year to go IMO. Water will be just fine to get in.

Thank you!! I'd hate to go all the way there and not be able to play in the ocean.

By the middle of October things start to cool down a good bit at night and the Gulf water begins to cool down as well. I usually find it too cold for my taste by the end of October, but everyone has a different tolerance level for swimming. NOAA says the average water temperature in the area for the month of October is 72, but expect it to be cooler than that by the fourth week of the month.
