Deep Sea Dive on USS Bugara

Friday, August 25 at 9:00 AM

Join us at the museum 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 a live stream of a deep sea exploration of the wreckage of WWII diesel submarine USS Bugara! The Bugara wreckage is located in about 800 feet of water just off the coast of Washington and will be explored via a remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) from the surface exploration vessel (E/V) Nautilus.

Staff from the museum and NOAA will kick off the presentation with opening remarks before we begin the live stream investigation of Bugara’s wreckage on the auditorium’s big screen at 9:30am. Please join us for this exciting event!
