I would start out with a recreational kayak. They are generally wider & more stable for beginners. As others have already said, "make sure that it has some sort of floatation built in." (I.E. foam blocks, sealed hatches, floatation bags.)
I started out with a Kiwi Lobo recreational kayak, which did everything (including short trips on Lake Michigan & Lake Superior) but did not excell at anything. After a few years, I decided to upgrade to a Jackson Rogue.
What part of Michigan are you from?
