Which Santee? Day touring or camping?

You say you want to "tour." The Santee is not a touring kayak. All of the Santees are recreational kayaks. Maybe you meant day touring?
Yes, there will be a performance difference between the two kayaks you're looking at. They are completely different kayaks, intended for different paddlers and different bodies of water. I don't think they make a good pair, especially for a male and female couple.
How did you settle on the Santee and the Stellar?
