ISLE AU HAUT FERRY
Old Quarry is located in Stonington, Maine. We are the gateway to Isle au Haut and the National Park. We have been taking passengers to Isle au Haut for over 20 years. Our passenger vessel can accommodate 19 passengers and is Coast Guard inspected. She has an enclosed cabin if the weather is bad.
If you miss the mailboat/ferry we will take you out to the island at anytime, at your convenience, or if you just want to go out on a very fast boat please give us a call.
We offer daily scheduled trips (See Boat Schedule) as well as a water taxi service to and from Isle au Haut day or night every day. Due to Park regulations we cannot take you to Duck Harbor, but you can hike, bike or kayak there and we can provide you with an awesome mountain bike or a seaworthy kayak. If you are going to walk you will need a good pair of legs. If you are going to kayak you will need a guide or be a proficient paddler.
The island remains largely uninhabited; it is quiet and quaint with few amenities for the tourist. There is a small grocery store (The Island Store) and a take out restaurant which is located next to the store. That’s pretty much it. There are two park restrooms; one at the Ranger Station near the dock and one at Duck Harbor.
Isle au Haut Island Protocols: Leave no trace principles please. Plan to take ALL your trash with you back to Old Quarry. We will take care of it for you. You must not take anything else back with you from the island like rocks, plants, or animals. Leave everything undisturbed including the local inhabitants. They enjoy their privacy – please respect it. Do not go on private lands. THIS IS A BIG NO-NO. Stay out of their way; don’t slow them down. The dock and the parking lot can be crowded during ferry boat time. Be considerate. Please use the Park facilities. Park rangers are there to help you if you need assistance. Seek them out for hiking advice, medical help, or for anything else when you are in the park.
