Ocean5 was designed to be a destination for socializing and fun:
Designed for the environment
Built and operated as one of the most environmentally responsible businesses in the region, Ocean5 shows that you can have fun and have a positive impact on the environment.
Ocean5 was created by long-time Gig Harbor resident Troy Alstead, the former Chief Operating Officer of Starbucks. The idea for the concept was inspired by his work abroad where he was exposed to different cultures and found a common theme - communal spaces that encouraged people to connect and share ideas. He built Ocean5 with enough elbow room (57,000 square feet) that people can meet with a friend or host a large group to play games, grab a drink or just hang out. Driven by Troy's lifelong passion for the ocean, he wanted to create a business that can also be a space to drive awareness of ocean health, inspire people to make small changes that make a positive impact on the environment, and take actions that improve the health of oceans both local and globally.
