Event detailsPier Into the Night invites adults and kids to observe marine activity that occurs in the Puget Sound from a night-time perspective. Submersible lights are anchored off the end of Jerisich Dock to illuminate underwater activity in Gig Harbor Bay. In the same way that porch lights attract insects, the underwater lights attract marine species that are seldom seen during the day including ambushing squid, sparkling ctenophores, and wriggling sea worms!
