JP and Irene discovered their love of kayaking in 2013 after a few casual paddling sessions and immediately began assembling their kayak fleet. TRAK owners since 2016, JP and Irene appreciate the unique opportunity that kayaking has provided to see things different. They are frequent explorers of the Rideau Canal system which links Ottawa to Kingston, and enjoy adventures in the extensive system of locks, lakes, and rivers which make up the canal and are eager to see more of Canada’s vast waterways.
