Whaling in New England

Many different forms of whaling have been used in Cape Cod. Drift, shore, herding, deep sea and artic whaling have all been practiced at one time or another. Each specific form of whaling has a small history connected with it. In the early 1800’s, whaling was among the most profitable enterprises in United States, second only to textiles. It remained strong for four decades. The reason why whale products are so valuable as well as the historic rationales as to why the whaling center moved from first from Nantucket, to Wellfleet, then to New Bedford and eventually to Provincetown will be told. Retelling the storied lives of several extremely successful Cape Cod whaling captains make the session come alive. Registration is recommended, seating is limited to 60.

Dr. Pregot has spent over a half of a century in the field of education. He has served as a high school principal, a district-wide school superintendent, a professor of education and as a University Director of an Educational Leadership Department. He has lived on the Cape for several years with his wife, Judith. He is still an on-line professor and author. The maritime history of the Cape has caught his attention for the past few years. He is currently studying the contributions that each Cape Cod town has made to the overall richness of maritime life.
