Pier Into the Night

Calendar/Event Details

Take an underwater journey of Gig Harbor Bay without getting wet (or needing special certification) through the Pier Into the Night experience.

While you stay warm and dry on the dock (look for the blue tents), our divers use an underwater video camera to live stream what they encounter below the surface. Staff biologists and trained volunteers identify the plants and animals that appear on the 10-foot screen in real time.

Animals we have encountered at past events include:

Feather-duster tube worms
Red Irish lorde, sculpin, and gunnels
Red rock, kelp, and graceful crabs
Stubby squid
Giant Pacific Octopus
And much more!

This program takes place on public docks in Downtown Gig Harbor on the first Saturday of the month from October-March. We encourage parents to place their children in floatation devices available for free on the dock for safety. Donations are always appreciated; suggested donation of $2 per person, or $5 per family. Bring a chair and dress for the weather (likely rain and cold).
