The title says it all. Deer Isle is gorgeous, Stonington is one of my favorite places in the world. OQOA is well equipped, well run, flexible, welcoming. I can'e say enough good things about it. Say hello to Captain Bill!

The young dark haired lady at the desk was very unfriendly and not helpful at all. She didn't even want to discuss renting anything to me. Just so so rude! Friday June 22, 2018. I will never go back or recommend this place.
Captain Fin expertly took us from Stonington up to Mount Desert to meet up with family. This operation is well run and the seamanship was excellent as was the company. This was a custom trip and the OQOA team was easy to work with and...More
