Add to Itinerary

The story of whales, and the whalers who followed them, is tied with Long Island’s rich maritime history. Join Nomi Dayan, the executive director of The Whaling Museum & Education Center of Cold Spring Harbor and author of Whaling on Long Island, for a pictorial presentation exploring the rise and fall of whaling on the island. Discover local whaleship fleets which traveled to the far corners of the world and the personalities behind local enterprises. Be transported to a time when whalers roamed the streets between journeys, shipbuilders worked in the harbors, and captains charted their expeditions in Long Island’s pursuit of the largest creatures in the world. Co-sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum and Rogers Memorial Library.
