Elisa - our whaleboat from the Azores

Smugglers Land Beach Scene

See Elisa, a real whaleboat from the Azores islands in the mid-Atlantic Ocean. She was used by her crew of seven men, propelled only by sail and oar, to hunt sperm whales using hand-thrown harpoons, just as in the days of Captain Ahab and Moby-Dick.

The Wheel Inn

The Wheel Inn

Here we see the inside of a pub scene, with a man bringing goods up from or down to a cellar below which would be then hidden under a table that would be placed over the removable slate floor slab, with the local smuggler seated planning his run.

The Gun Deck

The Gun Deck

Experience life on board the gun deck of an 18th century frigate, with cannons trained on the harbour through open gun hatches.

The Cave

Smugglers Cave

Discover the story of the local men who joined others from Scotland, in whaling from Leith Harbour, South Georgia in the Antarctic - told through their own photographs and artefacts.
