New Live Dive Program Now Underway!
Visit Harbor WildWatch’s new and improved Pier Into the Night with the new Live Dive on the first Saturday of each month through
March 2015. Programs are free of charge and open to the public.
Equipped with an HD underwater camera, volunteer SCUBA divers will travel to the bottom of Gig Harbor Bay in search for the creatures that inhabit our local waters. This unique opportunity allows people of all ages to become virtual SCUBA divers for the evening while staying dry and warm on the surface. Our friendly naturalists and experienced volunteers are on hand to answer questions and interpret what you see on the screen. You never know what you may encounter at a Live Dive - a squid, octopus or maybe even a Spiny Lumpsucker! Check our calendar for upcoming events.
We encourage parents to place their children in floatation devices on the dock for safety. Free life-jackets are available for use while at Jerisich Dock.
