American Pacific Whaling Company was a 20th century whaling company. The fleet worked the North Pacific and wintered in Meydenbauer Bay on Lake Washington, now part of Bellevue, Washington. The company was founded in Seattle c. 1911 and possibly renamed to North Pacific Sea Products when subsumed by Consolidated Whaling Company with Canadian ownership in 1918. In 1919, the company moved its headquarters to Bellevue.
