Luc and Anne-Marie moved to Chaffeys Lock in 2014 for the lifestyle this region offers and settled in the Rideau Lakes area with an eye to launch Rideau Tours. They are newlyweds and were married right in the Chaffeys Lock Hall!
Anne Marie is the Owner of Amplitude Tourism Consulting and was the Executive Director for the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association for the past 10 years. She has actively participated in local, regional and provincial tourism initiatives since 1999. Prior to her work with the Rideau Heritage Route, she was Manager of Visitor Services for Kingston Tourism from 1998–2006. She is passionate about the Rideau Canal and you will find her either paddling, cycling, swimming or waterskiing.
“Captaine” Luc is recently retired from the Canadian Military and is looking forward to welcoming you aboard his boat for cruises on the Rideau Canal. In his spare time he is a Classic Rock musician so you may just hear some music on a warm summer evening as you stroll through Chaffeys Lock. He crafts his own beer called Rideau Red Ale and is renowned for his maple smoked salmon.
Evan Harbec, Anne-Marie’s son is also part of the family fun as the Summer Adventure Director! Check out his EVANTURES Youtube videos
