I was thinking the typical distance might be shorter for breaststroke because the kicking isn't constant so the speed must be much lower. Oh, but as you mentioned, the underwater portion might be faster than the stroke for some people.
After working on the dolphin kick, I was able to do a head-lead dolphin beyond the mid point of the pool. For the first time I can imagine making it all the way across the pool...with fins on. I can't do so well with hand-lead dolphin yet.
