Bequia has a long tradition of whaling, a sport and livelihood first championed by a family of settlers in 1875. Although whaling in Bequia is in decline, remnants of Bequia’s whaling tradition are evident by the Whale bones locals have artistically used in the construction of restaurants, jewellery and pieces of art. Bequian’s are permitted to hunt for four whaler per year, under the International Whaling Commission’s Aboriginal Whaling regulations.
