Learn about what lives in area waters

The marine life within the tanks at the Feiro Marine Life Center seems static until a volunteer points out a scallop filtering plankton, and several starry flounders and great sculpins blanketed in sand. These and other lessons are what the late Arthur Feiro, a Port Angeles biology teacher with a passion for marine life, wanted his legacy to be in establishing the center, situated on the city pier next to Hollywood Beach. The center is an educational and scientific organization promoting marine education and conservation. Visitors can get up close to local marine life in the center’s touch and view tanks and bank of aquariums. The exhibits are representative of the marine life inhabiting the Strait of Juan de Fuca, including a young giant Pacific octopus captured in the Strait. Close to 20,000 visitors walk through the nonprofit center’s doors annually. Feiro is open seven days a week yearround, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the summer months.
