The Wareham Whalers have been rocking the boat with our powerful shanties since 2004.

We sing Shanties as they would have been sung for work on board ship and for the rare moments of recovery down below. We aim to capture the strength of this music and ensure there's never a dull moment when the Whalers are about!

As well as performances we also run workshops illustrating the history of Shanty singing and showing how shanties were used, with real rope!
We are indomitable supporters of the Falmouth International Shanty Festival, and can be seen all over the town during that weekend.

Closer to our home port of Wareham, we support the RNLI, and collect money for a local charity which is agreed at each AGM. For 2021 our nominated charity will be the Purbeck Youth & Community Foundation. This organization runs youth clubs in Wareham, Wool and Corfe Castle, as well as supporting young people in the community.
