On April 29, 2023, NOAA Ocean Exploration will spearhead a public port event in Seattle, Washington, in conjunction with regional NOAA entities. The port event will provide the public the chance to tour NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer and get a close-up look at the remotely operated vehicles used to explore the seafloor and water column, and to see deep-sea specimens, newly created bathymetric maps, and videos from past expeditions. NOAA scientists from the region will be on hand alongside the expedition team to answer questions and share their work. There will also be informational tables and family-friendly educational activities. Note that close-toed shoes must be worn in order to tour the ship.
