  Which Santee? Day touring or camping?
  Posted by: WaterBird on Jun-24-13 2:32 PM (EST)

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?

We can't really advise you without more information. Info that would be useful:

Size of paddlers
Where you intend to paddle: size and type of bodies of water
Day touring or camping?
