Membership Levels

Lifetime Membership
A lifetime membership is $1,000 and can be purchased below.


Help keep Sag Harbor's whaling history alive by volunteering or becoming a docent at the Whaling Museum. Volunteers will work primarily in the museum shop and docents will lead both adult and school groups throughout the museum.

Museum shop volunteers should feel comfortable interacting with our visitors and assisting them with their purchases. You should also be able to count change and be willing to learn to use a credit card machine. Docents will be trained in the history of whaling, artifact history, our building history and local history in order to present this to our tour groups.

Please call 631-725-0770 to become a volunteer at the Whaling Museum. Thank you for your support.
