Papillon Airways Inc. and Forever Houseboats are offering a flight and sea tour at either Grand Canyon West, El Dorado Canyon, or Antelope Valley. The summer package is called the Fly and Float Experience and Papillon Airways and Forever Houseboats offer a uniquely crafted itinerary for each location. All programs consist of two days onboard the signature Millennium houseboat and an air tour in Papillon’s EC-130 B4 Ecostar on the third day. Rates begin at $4,575.
“This is an experience ideal for a group of visitors who want to experience the Southwest in a brand new way. It’s so simple to book but with the capabilities of creating lifelong memories,” said Robert Graff, vice president of marketing, Papillon. “Weddings, incentive planners, family reunions — name the group; this experience is perfect for them.”
On the houseboat, guests are provided with full VIP services, private staterooms with fully equipped kitchens, a spacious living area, flat-screen televisions, a water slide and a hot tub on the deck. On the Ecostar, the airplane features a large cabin that is forward-facing and has raised theater-style seating providing 180-degree, unobstructed views.
