Reservation Policy

Bunkhouse, Campground, Equipment

We prefer payment in full by check, unless the total amount exceeds $100.00 for all rental equipment and all bunkhouse and campground reservations. If it exceeds that amount, then the deposit will be 50% (credit cards hold the reservation while we wait for your check). We will run your credit card if a balance is due the day before your arrival. For any additional purchases, cash is preferred. We do accept VISA, Mastercard & Discover. Some deposits are not refundable; see the Cancellation Policy below. We offer a CASH DISCOUNT on most of our prices - see our Rate Sheets.

Reservations for equipment will be held until the specified sign out time unless you call to notify us otherwise. The deposit will be dealt with per the Cancellation Policy if you don't show up.

The renters of equipment or of the bunkhouse and campground will be charged for any repairs or replacement of damaged or lost equipment (including boat rentals). Bunkhouse renters will be charged the cost of repair to the bunkhouse for any damages. A cleaning fee will be assessed for returning dirty equipment.

Cell Phones & Other Electronics

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.

Old Quarry Cancellations

When Old Quarry cancels a program, kayak or boat trip, class, lesson, or anything else we will refund the full deposit amount. If you are coming a significant distance for an event such as a lighthouse or puffin trip, please understand that trips can be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances including bad weather, mechanical problems, and lack of sufficient participants. You must call before you leave for your trip to confirm. Unfortunately, we can't always know even right up to the scheduled activity time if the trip is a go or not due to all of the above possibilities. We stand behind our products/services and will do our best to make your trip happen - we want to keep our customers happy and coming back. Communication is essential before a trip.
