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.
