Touching Spirit Bear: swimming in the cold

Dear world,
As you can see the water in this picture is gray/ blue and it looks really cold.
Cole is at the island for circle justice. He has just decided to burn down his shelter, it is turning dark. Cole is thinking that no one accept his dad knew he was a strong swimmer. He had decided to swim from island to island until he got to the states.

I had thought that it was not such a great idea to swim out of the island and of course it was not a good idea to burn down his shelter. I think that since this story takes place in Alaska he will freeze to death. According to the chart below you can see how cold the water can get at different  time of the year.
