Any advice on whether kayaking or canoeing is easiest for paddling beginners who are over 60 years old?

Man and wife who love the outdoors, not looking for the excitement of whitewater and not for fishing. Mainly looking to canoe/kayak creeks, lakes, large ponds where wind and weather may have an effect. We have canoed and do enjoy it, but never kayaked. We want safety and ease. Possible overnight trips.

I want a kayak that’s good on ponds/lakes with water that’s barely moving….what should I look for?

I don’t want to rule out heading out on rivers with 5 mile an hour current
but I’d mainly be on pretty calm water.

I don’t want to fish
and a one seater would be fine

what kinds of things should I be looking for in a kayak?

I’m very new to this.

Thanks a lot for any help

Does anyone own the Hobie sport or Hobie outback fishing kayak?

Just wondering what you thought of it, including its downfalls and how you like the peddle drive system. I fish at ponds and lakes.
