Blue Skies

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.

Kasia Pawlowska loves words. A native of Poland, Kasia moved to the States when she was seven. The San Francisco State University creative writing graduate went on to write for publications like the San Francisco Bay Guardian and KQED Arts among others prior to joining the Marin Magazine staff. Topics Kasia has covered include travel, trends, mushroom hunting, an award-winning series on social media addiction and loads of other random things. When she’s not busy blogging or researching and writing articles, she’s either at home writing postcards and reading or going to shows. Recently, Kasia has been trying to branch out and diversify, ie: use different emojis. Her quest for the perfect chip is never-ending.
