Join us at the
Naval Undersea Museum (Keyport) on Friday, August 25,
2017, from 9am - 11am as we partner with the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Dr. Robert Ballard's Ocean
Exploration Trust to present an all-ages viewing party of a deep sea

Bugara is located in about 1,000 feet of water just off the coast of
Washington in the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. It will
be explored via a remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) from the surface
exploration vessel (E/V) Nautilus. We will watch the live stream of
the dive on our big screen together!
Doors will open at 8:30am. Seating is first-come, first-served.
