Fall and Winter Programs...JUST RIGHT FOR ALL AGES!
Bring your family and join Foss Waterway Seaport for GREAT FUN!

Bring your family and join Foss Waterway Seaport and Metro Parks Tacoma for a "Pier Peer in Tacoma" aquatic nighttime adventure. Explore the hundreds of mysterious marine life forms — including some pretty "alien" looking creatures drawn to underwater lights placed off our docks.  

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. 

Please dress for the weather: The docks can be wet. Please bring your own flashlights; we will provide life jackets as well as scoops to catch sea creatures. All participants must wear a life jacket! We encourage you to bring your own life jacket if you own one.
