Episea, CD Raven

There is a kids sea kayak called "EpiSea", that you might find. It's an easy-to-paddle kid-specific boat, with a stern hatch. It's not a great choice if you want to teach the kid to roll, or do braces, but it's much better than the recreational kids boats, like the Scout, IMO.
The best kids sea boat I've found is the CD Raven. It's a bit more expensive (closer to $1000), but it's properly sized, very well built, and very light weight. I just bought one for my daughter, and now her Episea is for sale (if you happen to be headed to Maine).
