I'm currently researching kayaking. I've little experience but I am interested in purchasing a kayak to bum around the Prince William Sound. Ideally, I am interested in putting in near whittier and pulling over night(s) trips to some of the calving glaciers.
I don't own anything yet and will be looking into some used equipment.
I plan to buy a drysuit for scuba diving so i'll have it for kayaking also. Originally I planned to get a long sea kayak (touring) but have heard that some have no problem using shorter recreational kayaks in the ocean. Is this reasonable or one of those "it can be done in theory" kind of things?
Any thoughts, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
