I paddle the everglades of Florida. There are coastal paddle trips that favor a touring kayak or a decked canoe. In the large backcountry lakes and rivers the canoe makes sense. No where to land and small sites difficult to access from a kayak,
Point is, you must use the craft that best suits your paddling area. I started with kayaks and find a solo canoe best suits my needs.
