Where the D'entrecasteaux Channel meets the mouth of the Derwent River, whaling made quick fortunes. This was "Bay Whaling", shore based whaling. At Kelly's Point whaling men on shore waited for a call from the lookout. They then rowed out, chased the whale and speared it. The bay whalers then rowed out in their whaling boat, chased the whale down and speared it. The whale was towed back, pulled up onto the shore, then cut up for its bone and oil.
