About this event

Pier Peer at Boston Harbor Marina

Underwater lights attract spectacular estuary creatures for you to safely scoop up and observe, while our volunteer naturalists help you identify and learn more about what you’ve found. Also try your hand at driving an underwater remotely operated vehicle.

Registration Policies and Event Info:

Preregistration is required to ensure proper staffing for events. Registration for each event will close 24-hours before the event begins.

Adults (Ages 13 and older) - $15

Children (Ages 12 and younger) - $3

**Children must wear life jackets during this event and be accompanied by an adult. There must be at least one adult per two children to ensure supervision and safety. This event involves some contact with deep water and is not recommended for children under 6 years old. We have some life jackets to borrow, but please bring your own if you can.

Attire/Gear - Please wear a mask. We highly recommend that each participant bring their own flashlight! Wear non-slip shoes as the dock can be slippery and dress for the weather. Not a bad idea for those with children to have spare clothes and towel in the car.

Cancellation - We reserve the right to cancel Pier Peer due to low registration (under 8 participants) or bad weather. Our weather policy is based on Olympia School District closures, i.e. if the Olympia School District closes its schools based on weather, we will also cancel Pier Peer. In the case of above cancellations, the Estuarium will make every effort to work with registrants to reschedule.

All other cancellations (e.g. no shows or personal reasons) will not be rescheduled, nor refunded.

Liability Waiver - All participants must sign a liability waiver that will be provided in the registration process.

As of April 2022, Pier Peer registration for each child will now be $3. We have also instituted a new low-income discount that offers free registration to individuals or families with an EBT card. To utilize this new program email Programs@pugetsoundestuarium.org with a photo of your EBT card and a valid ID.
