Mountain and Sea Adventures
Mountain and Sea Adventures (MSA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and has been running programs on Santa Catalina Island for twenty years. We excel in providing the highest quality outdoor education experience on the island.
MSA’s program focuses on conducting actual field research: Students are taught to utilize the scientific method using their field journal to record data, notice patterns, develop hypotheses, and eventually apply their theories.
Snorkeling, hiking and kayaking are accompanied by short lectures to prepare the students for what they will see during their activity; thus enriching their experience and demonstrating how much fun it truly is to learn!
MSA will take thousands of youth around the nation and make them into World Changers. They will be environmentally responsive individuals with strong character geared up to positively transform society. MSA Staff will be mentored by professionals in various fields which will guide them in their gift skill mixture. This will enable them to climb their career mountain and become the best in their sphere.
MSA Teaches outdoor education in a manner that increases awareness of the environment, raises the spirit of participants, and builds character.
Since 1997 over 100,000 students have attended MSA programs. Between five and six thousand students attend our programs each year!
MSA’s program is heavy on character building and imparting courage, self confidence, as well as a deep personal appreciation and love for the marine environment through hands-on personal experience.

Win Hafer, our beloved mother, has been gone for nearly three years. Fran and Annie have been waiting to honor mom with something special for some time, something she would feel proud and excited to be a part of. She had a deep love for the ocean, sea life and cruising. She was passionate and generous about helping our work with MSA, teaching ocean stewardship and science. Our goal is to name the Pilot House of our new vessel, the Enhydra, after Win Hafer. Her name and picture will be on the door and inside the Pilot House as well as the Sponsor's Wall at the entrance to the ship.$350.00 donated of $50,000.00 goal
