Considering the criteria you noted, maybe a canoe would be more suitable. However, I would strongly recommend doing a lot of looking at and paddling before making such a critical choice. I think it would be a huge mistake to buy something to surprise your husband with.

You didn't mention how much wampum you are prepared to spend on this enterprise. Beside the boat/boats there is a never ending list of kind of spendy things you will need. Do not make the mistake of thinking you can cheap out on pfd's (life jackets) and paddles.

On the other hand, this is likely to be the best investment you will ever make if you make the right choices. For my personal recommendation, I would have to go with two solo sea kayaks. Here's a place to get started nckayaks.com.
