Dear Sara, I am responsible for asking Susan to urge double kayaks as we do so everyday for a variety of reasons. Double kayaks are more stable for beginners, roomier for larger paddlers, less tiring on a full day trip and convenient for photographers. Many...More

Your best bet is to check out their website (google st augustines sea kayaking homer) and then email Scott (via details on the site) - he was extremely helpful in answering all of our questions.
