Use a stern ladder, works best. My wife gets out easiest by stepping on the first underwater ladder rung, reaching up and pulling herself out of the boat. Getting in is the reverse. That way you don't need to worry about unbalancing the kayak itself. However esp the short, fat cruising kayaks are quite stable and I can stand up and step out.
