Here in Victoria, Canada, there are events going on over many days to celebrate this important day. Like past years, Fish Eye Project will be participating in the World Oceans Day event held at Fisherman's Wharf on Sunday, June 11th, 2017 from 11 - 4 pm (Pacific Time).

Come join in some interactive and engaging activities on the wharf with us! We will be doing TWO live dives to explore the marine life growing on artificial reefs (float homes)! The first at 12 noon and the second at 2 pm (Pacific time). We'll be there from 11 am - 4 pm, so come say "hi"!
