Oceanography Summer Camps

Are you passionate about the Ocean? Then Mountain and Sea Adventure’s (MSA) Floating Sea Camp is just the program for you! Come experience fun, adventure and an educational experience that will inspire you starting the very moment you arrive at summer camp! Oceanography is one of the most exciting scientific fields, as it allows you to explore the wonders of the ocean and all that it contains. A week onboard our hundred and twelve foot leisure vessel, the Enhyda, gives you a unique chance to explore the remote beaches and dive spots around Santa Catalina Island, a true paradise for nature lovers.

MSA has been running Oceanography summer camps on Catalina Island for over 20 years, and is passionate about introducing young people to a whole new world beneath the surface of the waves. Our naturalist staff is well-trained from leading school groups during the other months of the year, and always look forward to the summer season as a chance to let loose, mentor youth and really enjoy all the island has to offer altogether!

Catalina Summer Camp

There is no better place to experience all the ocean has to offer in southern California than on Catalina. Summer Camp on Santa Catalina Island is a dream come true for ocean lovers. Every day we are snorkeling and scuba diving at different locations, including the world famous Avalon Casino Point Dive Park. We also have structured playtime with kayaks, floating islands, stand up paddleboards and other gear stored on board the ship.

Floating Sea Camp is the only Catalina summer camp based onboard a marine research vessel, giving you the precious opportunity to live like a marine biologist as you explore the vast and rich natural resource that is Santa Catalina Island. View marine mammals daily, swim with Garibladi, Sheepshead and other beautiful marine life, and learn all about the different forms of both marine and terrestrial flora and fauna from our expert trained naturalist staff!

Floating Sea Camp

When you attend MSA’s Floating Sea Camp you enjoy both leisure and adventure! There are 20 staterooms each with two beds, and a private restroom with shower, sink and toilet. As soon as you step onboard you feel like you are in a floating hotel! This gets to be your home for the next week!

Our professional galley and dedicated full-time chef is always there with a variety of freshly prepared cuisine, with alternative meals for various diet types. There is also a snack bar with various wholesome food options to make sure you are always full of energy and ready for adventure! We invite you to come experience Floating Sea Camp, which is guaranteed to be the highlight of your summer.

Sea Camp Program

We start off with lots of interactive games and ice-breakers to make everyone feel comfortable, at ease and friendly with each other right from the beginning of the program. Sea camp is a unique opportunity to really explore your passionate interest in the sea, you may want to sign up for a two week camp, come back as a counselor in training (CIT) and continue to improve your knowledge-base and experience in Oceanography and marine biology.
