The wilderness systems Pamilico 120 -$700 is a cheap choice for you. It has a wide cockpit, and no sealed bulkhead, but what do u expect from a lower end model. Single hatch, 12′ long. If you want something longer the tsunami series is highly reccomended and more suited for touring purposes. They go for more since you are paying by the foot for kayaks! About $1000 for one. – well worth the money though.
Dont go with costco – crappy models.
Also consider the Dagger Catalyst. Although the seating is not as nice as the wilderness systems, it is more suited for day touring than the Pamilico 120. It is 13′ long and approx. $900.
