About Us

At Jenda PaddleSports, we sell and rent the best equipment in PaddleSports in the Ottawa area including canoes, kayaks and SUP boards along with their accompanying accessories and replacement parts. We offer experience, advice, and our passion for the outdoors.  We carry a large inventory from some of the best manufacturers including Wilderness Systems, Clipper Canoes, Hobie Kayaks, Perception, Mad River and Necky, to name just a few.

As a small business, we like to spend time with you to match you to the boat that will best suit your needs. As paddling enthusiasts we strive to ensure you paddle away happy!

Our shop is in a renovated, airy heritage barn not too far from the Rideau River in south Ottawa near the village of Osgoode, a short 20 minute drive from downtown. The barn is an old one built in the 1920's we think. We use the old stable area as a display room and the mow floor for boat storage. The barn floor provides a nice stable surface for the boat so you can easily hop in and out of an assortment of them to compare. There is lots of space to sit in the kayaks to try out the seats and the size before you test paddle them. We invite you to browse our web site and then come out for a visit... you won't regret the trip.  We look forward to meeting you in person.
