Be sure you get a two piece paddle. I have done a reasonable amount of paddling in mangroves which have narrow, twisty routes with restricted space overhead. It is easier to paddle that with half a paddle (i.e., a "canoe" paddle). In other words, learn basic canoe strokes as well as kayak strokes and use a paddle that allows both.
