Sea temps in early October

Should I plan on a dip on my 2-days on the Amalfi coast?

Depends what you're used to - I find it pleasant but I come from a beach area on a similar latitude. I guess water temps are around 20-22 degrees Celsius - and the water is emerald green and clean. Beautiful for swimming.

Heads up on water temps from this Destin/Seaside, Florida gal; our idea of comfortable water temps vary greatly from Europeans!!! ( not judging or slamming, just saying)

Last September we spent mid Sept to Mid Oct in Greece. Everything we read said September had "the" warmest water of all the summer months;whew! We stayed on three different islands , all on the water properties, villas with pool, beach fronts, you get the idea;we went in the water ONE TIME in an entire month because it was soooooooo frigid! Us Southern gals just might be too spoiled by 80 degree Gulf waters, but be prepared.

Enjoy your trip!!!

I would definitely plan on it. As Bondgirl says, it won't be warm per Gulf of Mexico standards but it's a tad warmer than Southern California. I find swimming there in late Sept/early Oct to be extremely pleasant and relaxing. Bring "water shoes" since the beaches are pebbly at best with rocky being more the norm. Early in October you should still hit terrific weather at least for a few days.
