NOOB - Kayak Advice / Shopping Recommendations?

I went Kayaking for the first time in a Perception Acadia 11.5 on a lake and loved it! I live in a small water front town near Seattle and have seen kayaks in the puget sound here and there so I'd like to find a kayak that is good for lakes as well as sea. My question is what's the difference? I noticed most searches I did for sea/ocean kayaks were sit-on-top ones but I really dont like the idea of splashing puget sound water all over myself :P Most websites I visit looking at kayaks (like the link above) don't specify what type of water the kayaks are built for... are some okay for all water types? I'm a beginner and on a budget so any reccomendations of cheaper yaks would be great! Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm not knowledgeable on sea kayaks, but I'd recommend getting in contact with some people in:
Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup Group (Seattle, WA) - Meetup.com

They will be able to give you more specific information on what is suitable for the conditions and the area, as well as contacts with whom you can venture out.
