Pier Peer

Join South Sound Estuary Association at Boson Harbor Marina for Pier Peer night-lighting events on Friday nights.   Peer below the waters of Puget Sound and discover the lives of mysterious and beautiful creatures.  Jellyfish, colorful sea slugs, predatory worms and more visit us at the underwater lights.  Learn about the animals of Puget Sound and see them like you never have before!

    Why have links to the videos when they are labeled as “private” and cannot be played?

  3. fish lover says:

    In 2013 the commenter said Pier Peer was on Saturday nights, but the 2014 events are showing Friday nights. Can someone official clarify? Or remove the 2013 comment to avoid confusion.
