For a $2 donation, you can spend an hour learning about life about whaling and life on a whaling ship. Surprising fact: lunar lander was lubricated with whale oil.

Wow! Would never have thought to step inside, but what an education. This is a very tiny museum that you can walk through quite quickly, but trust me you will linger to read the intriguing and heart wrenching stories about what these whaling sailors endured on their journeys. Quite unbelieveable.

On one side you see the ocean, the other side has the mountain. That said, parking is a nightmare and the stores are average but expensive, unless you make sure to go upstairs to the shop that sells locally made handcrafts. That's where we spent all of our money at this mall, except for lunch. The restaurants at this mall are pricey for average food. They claim to have great views, but you can get a better view at one of the golf club restaurants on the south end of the island- or just by walking on the beach in front of the mall.
