My first experience with a kayak was a Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 used at Mission Bay in San Diego, CA. That got my 7 year old son and I hooked, but I was looking for something a bit more utilitarian... the Twin Otter fit the bill. We take off every Saturday out of Marina del Rey boat harbor in L.A., and with little effort, are shortly out into open ocean just outside the breakwater. It is super stable, has room for all sorts of gear, and makes for an enjoyable family outing. Only downsides are the weight, and lack of footpad adjustment in front sufficient to accomodate my son's legs... other than that, a great investment... and we got it at the end of the summer season, so we only paid half price!
