The hike & overnight trip I took with Mountain Sea Adventures was great. I especially enjoyed Caitlin's knowledge of plants and their uses. You can see her enthusiasm for the natural world come through when she's guiding a tour and getting a chance to taste delicious wild edible plants was super cool. I highly recommend Caitlin & Mountain Sea Adventures!

Mountain Sea Adventures offers unique outdoor experiences that capture the magic of Northern California. Caitlin is a great guide, fun to be around and very easy to sort out logistics with. I'd highly recommend going on an adventure with Mountain Sea Adventures!
Leaders were exceptional! There were always there when we needed them and they were continually reminding us to relax and have a good time and that they were there to make it happen...

Foraging seems intimidating at times, which is why we really valued our hike with Caitlin. She showed us edible plants and techniques for harvesting them. She also brought along prepared dishes from her forage treks. The stinging nettle pesto and candy capped mushroom cookies were divine. Caitlin welcomed all our questions and was overall very approachable. A very relaxing and informative hike. I would definitely go again.

Her knowledge about such a vast array of topics was impressive. Equally impressive was her ability to convey that knowledge in an interesting way. However nothing matched her enthusiasm and ability to connect with others.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the relaxed and enthusiastic Caitlin and Tad on our Forest Foraging excursion this past weekend. Caitlin is super knowledgeable about the fungus among us and other edible/non edible plants. also she was able to say "i don't know" if she was unsure and make a note of it to find out later. i appreciate that honesty...Oh yeah, and she made us some food from her own foraging trips and treated us like old friends. it was a great way to spend my day, and i would hop on the next M. S. A train any day. Thank you again Caitlin and Tad! lots of love
Beforehand we were just slightly worried that our leaders on this trip would not be as great as our leaders on our last trip - which quickly became an obviously needless worry. Caitlin has a very reassuring manner conveying that everything is in control, as well as great people skills, a great sense of humor, and a great play list for long van rides! She was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the trip, and worked very well with Caitlin and Chase. It`s clear that she loves her work...

I truly enjoyed my adventure day with Mountain Sea. The guides were great, courteous and friendly while being totally professional. We learned a ton about the Santa Cruz area, we explored redwoods, beaches and even foraged for some wild food along the way. Caitlin's (owner) enthusiasm was contagious...it was so fun, highly recommended!
