We are a Quebec-based, family-owned paddling company and have been for 25 years. What
started from a passionate desire to create the perfect canoe to safely guide paddlers on rivers and
wilderness canoe trips has expanded its base to also offers boats for recreational, whitewater,
touring, hunting, and fishing.
All boats are constructed utilizing T-Formex, a high-tech ABS plastic laminate, specially designed
for canoes. The perfect blend of performance, light weight and durability will allow a lifetime of
maintenance free paddling.
Whichever adventure awaits you on the water… we thank you for taking us along with you.
