    You can bring in a whale of any size or breed to have it whaled or re-whaled depending on the cut you like. They also have a smoker and provide 3, 4, and 7 day smoking. The other side is the consolidation where they can melt down the fat and blubber for candles and wax. They have really great fall prices but summer months can be costly.

    This is the location where one of the great Antarctic Explorers Earnest Shackleton is buried. The story of his climbing over the mountains to this station with two others is one of the great inspirational adventures of all time. This led to his saving the lives of most of his expedition in the early 1900s located on Elephant Island. Without this station the whole expedition would have perished. For this reason alone, this not used now whaling station is worth visiting. I bow down to his grave.

    Didn't catch any whales, heartbreakingly. But the opportunity to learn about the Moby Dick era almost made up for it.
