Despite almost unanimous public affection for cuddly sea creatures, whale compliments such as "is that blubber underneath your sweater?" and "you remind me of Shamu" are generally not well received. Revere whales more respectfully with today's Groupon to the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum. Choose between two membership options:

With more than 6,000 original whaling artifacts, the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum harbors the distinctive history of maritime and whaling in the Long Island region. The museum's year-round exhibitions and events bear witness to one of the area’s earliest industries with more than 2,800 primary and secondary whaling documents, including ships' logs, journals, business correspondence of the Cold Spring Whaling Company, and Captain Ahab's prosthetic limb. Visitors can check out the current exhibition From Prey to Protection to explore the evolution of public opinion surrounding whaling and examine antiwhaling efforts around the globe. In addition to a year's worth of unlimited admission and invitations to special events, members receive a subscription to the newsletter "A Whaling Account," 10% off at the museum gift shop, and a 68% increased chance of seeing Willy leap magnificently over their heads should they join the antiwhaling effort.
