Saturday, November 8

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.
