Our trip was later in August, at the peak of the water temps. We all had wetsuits and dry gear and used it on one overcast and crappy day 15 mile paddle with 4-6 ft seas and beaming wind.
I mostly wore my dry top and dry pants, vs a wet suit. The water was warm by Lake Superior standards, but still very chilly, especially under the top 10 inches of water. We did do some swimming from our camp beaches when the sun was out and bathed in the evenings, but when the sun went down it cooled dramatically. Evening relaxing was jackets and long pants. Night time brought out the thermal underwear even in August.
