Kayak Rentals

Kayak Rentals, Kayak Delivery, Shuttle & Taxi Service

Old Quarry’s rental fleet consists of Wilderness System, Necky, P&H, and Boreal Design kayaks for those with paddling experience. We also sell some of these brands plus Perception, Dagger P&H, and Mad River, new and used, all year long.

The Stonington archipelago is a relatively sheltered area, however sea kayaking on the ocean presents a number of challenges. For your safety, we may ask you questions to determine your proficiency in kayaking including performing a wet exit and self rescue. We prefer inexperienced paddlers to use tandem kayaks because they are much safer.  Before you depart, we will discuss weather, route options, channel crossings, Leave No Trace principles, and ask you to file a kayak float plan with us. We encourage you to carry a two-way radio (available for rent at Old Quarry) and/or a cell phone and to contact us if you deviate from your float plan or run into any problems. Cell phones, electronic keys, and other electronics should always be in a waterproof container. Zip lock bags may be sufficient. One drop of salt water in the wrong place can ruin your device. It has happened more than once here. We are not responsible in any way if you get your device lost or wet. Old Quarry’s charterboat, Nigh Duck, is available for supplies or rescue as needed.

We’ll provide all the necessary paddling gear – pfd, paddle, paddle float, pump, and a chart. After your safety talk, we’ll assist you in launching from our facility. Depending on the extent of your experience and the weather conditions, we may ask you to paddle within a designated area.

Inexperienced paddlers should go with a guide. Paddlers with some experience will be limited to a designated area and tandem kayaks. Well experienced paddlers can choose their own boat and route. Children under fourteen must be in a tandem kayak unless very experienced and with experienced adults. This is at the discretion of Old Quarry staff. What to bring kayaking.
