    The company behind SEAPLANE ADVENTURES has undergone many iterations through the years. Originally established in 1945 as Commodore Seaplanes by Bob Law, a returning veteran World War II seaplane pilot, it has provided (at one time) a home base for the largest flight school in the United States and the largest regional air carrier going to Lake Tahoe, as well as rehearsal space for the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Carlos Santana. These days it holds another designation — the only remaining seaplane company in California. Currently operated by Sausalito residents Aaron and Tiffany Singer, Seaplane Adventures offers five tours that give passengers bird’seye views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Stinson Beach and more. The company is also celebrating a big anniversary this year — and chalking up some other impressive numbers. seaplane.com
