Old Quarry Ocean Adventures
Sea Kayaking Outfitter & Oceanfront Campground
We welcome you to visit one of the most extraordinary places on the coast of Maine. The Deer Isle-Stonington archipelago in Penobscot Bay is a unique and breathtaking area, home to the largest concentration of bald eagles in the lower 48 States, and over 60 uninhabited islands. It is well known to be the destination of choice for kayakers, sailors, campers, and any nature enthusiast. People from all over the world come to this place because of the quiet, un-spoiled and awe-inspiring environment. They come to Old Quarry because we provide the perfect access to this magical body of water, where seals and porpoises thrive and sea birds are abundant, where historic windjammers sail, and lighthouses stand stalwartly on rocky cliffs as sentinels of the night. Old Quarry Ocean Adventures is committed to protecting this region, and our goals include implementing and teaching eco-friendly practices and fostering in our clientele a desire to become stewards of our planet's oceans.

Old Quarry is located on Webb Cove in Stonington. Our site is comprised of 9 pristine acres covered with mostly old growth spruce forest. We have 1,000 feet of ocean frontage with 2 all-tide launch sites, a spring-fed 1 acre pond for swimming, kayak practice and training, a scenic campground with secluded wooded sites and a very clean bathhouse, a charming bunkhouse with 3 private rooms, a well stocked camp store, and a variety of rental equipment. Our property abuts a 50 acre public park that was once a large working granite quarry. Our walking trails lead to the park trails - a fascinating place with wonderful views.
