Pier Peer in Tacoma

Saturday, February 23 (7:30pm - 9:00pm)

Sponsored jointly by Foss Waterway Seaport and Metro Parks Tacoma, these popular programs are a great way to see the sea life in your area.

Bring your family and join us for an aquatic night-time adventure as you explore hundreds of mysterious life forms below the docks with experienced naturalists!

See and touch creatures brought up from the deep by local divers. Participate in a plankton tow.

After this exciting outdoor adventure, we'll go inside to warm up, drink hot cocoa and talk about what we saw. Dress for the weather - the docks can be wet - and bring your own flashlights. We provide life jackets as well as scoops to catch sea creatures. Pre-Register to reserve your spot!

  • Ages 8 and up ONLY!
  • $8.00/person
  • Each child requires one adult companion.
  • Pre-registration required.
  • Bring a flashlight or headlamp.
  • Personal flotation devices (life-jackets) will be provided and required, but feel free to bring your own.
