What is the best for several days sea kayaking tour?

I've been looking at the tsunami WAS 170 people. A boat tour transistional. But there are many options out there.I am looking to paddle and Glacier Bay in Alaska resurection of 2-4 weeks.And am also interested in a trip to Isle Royal in Lake Superior.I lives in the western North Pacific and of course going to want a good weekender.I I 5 '8 "and 200 pounds. 10-inch shoes and kayak paddling mediocre skills.This is a one time purchase of the boat and I do not want to be updated as a backpacker I have with the team. Most of the reviews on the Internet are simply connects to certain brands reviews.Someone surges or there has taken trips I'm pointing. Please help! I tried some at local stores but I feel I'm ready to be always only.And selection there really do not think we know a boat in a few hours. Thanks

I recommend looking at the NDK (Sea Kayaking UK) Explorer. I paddled a widely in northern California, Alaska, and the United Kingdom, both tours and travel self-supported 1-2 weeks. Other authors have used this model for the expeditions around the world: Iceland, Anarctica, Madagascar, Tasmania. It is reasonably fast (not run fast boat, but fast enough), and very good performance in the wind and raw water. For me at least, is very comfortable to sit all day. Some people do not care for the small 10 "round hatch, but I have been Thermarest able to fill my other full-size car-camping gear inside. While it is a great expedition boat, also works well as a day of sightseeing boat for someone my size (210 pounds) .. If you do not care for the Explorer, you may also want to try the Valley Aquanaut. This is a somewhat similar design, but it is easier for users perhaps at the expense of some performance. If you've been touring mostly kayaks transitional child may seem a bit awkward at first. Score of approximately 1 / 2 day on the water reasonably quiet, and you settle in them fairly quickly. Since you are planning to do some travel longer, it will be important to cover some miles in a day. I think if you come to a tsunami or other transition boat, you quickly get over it and wishing you have a faster boat. Since you're in the Pacific Northwest, I recommend you call the Council of Blade ship Orcas Island for verification, along with the other boats they sell. They are honest enough that they will not push anything that is clearly not a good match for you. Since you describe your skills as "Mediocre", you may also want to consider taking some classes of BBB. Maybe make a weekend out of it. It is one of the best schools sea kayaking in North America. South Sound Kayak at Olympia also has boats NDK but not Valley. You can contact them to see a demo too.
