As no one else has replied yet, I will try to do my best with suggestions before the actually experienced paddlers come on.

I assume that, since Lake Tahoe is very big, that you need to look for an ocean kayak, not a recreational one. With that said, a tandem touring kayak can be very expensive, so you may want to consider purchasing two singles, one very nice one for him and one a little cheaper one for you, if you plan to use it less.

Most boats are rated for up to Class II river rapids, but in general a boat suited for open water (i.e. ocean/large lake) will not be very good for whitewater. You would need a whitewater - style kayak for rapids over Class II.

Hopefully others can correct this, and suggest specific boat brands. Good luck!
