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!
