Old Quarry Ocean Adventures

Grab a paddle. We’re ready for you! Old Quarry is a full-service, waterfront campground and boating outfitter out on a stunning point in Stonington, Maine.

Join us for some of the best sea kayaking in North America, surrounded by more than 60 islands. Launch from right here, a quieter island Down East.

We offer 18 campsites—on the water and tucked privately in the woods–plus indoor accommodations, sailing, boat tours, lighthouse and puffin & pelagics trips, lessons, charters, rentals, a great little campground store, and take-out restaurant with Gifford’s ice cream. The best! And lobster dinners available all day, of course.

At Old Quarry, we’re family-friendly and pet-friendly. We’re just plain friendly.

Have a great adventure and make memories at Old Quarry!

Enjoy tours, classes, and private lessons with our Maine Guides for kayaking and paddle boarding, or you can join our sailing instructors for a sailing lesson.

Board our charterboat Nigh Duck for eco-cruises, sightseeing & natural history tours, trips to Isle au Haut, lighthouse, wildlife, and scenic trips, as well as puffin & pelagic birds trips.

Tent in our campground, stay in our bunkhouse (three private rooms), pond view room, or Captain’s House rental suites, or bring your RV.

Rent a kayak, sailboat, canoe, paddleboard, or bike and have your own adventure.

We can also drop you off on one of the local islands for however long you want to have a picnic, take a short scenic hike, and then a swim in the island quarry. An awesome adventure. Hourly Island Shuttle Service.

“Why yes, I’ll have a lobster delivered to my tent.

Pitch your tent in the woods — or right by the ocean. They have a cafe there, where they serve breakfast sandwiches and lobster rolls and such. And if you tell the staff in the morning that you’d like fresh lobster that night (because MAINE), they will literally go out and catch it for you during the day — and they’ll even deliver it directly to your tent in the evening if you ask. With cooked corn. On a silver platter.”
