Seaplane shuttles are classier versions of taxicabs, just as cashmere cardigans are classier versions of wearing a live goat around one's shoulders. Grab sophistication by the tail with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 20-minute roundtrip seaplane shuttle and 40-minute fly-in wine tasting from Chelan Seaplanes and Rio Vista Wines in Chelan (a $79 value).

Chelan Seaplanes take limousine service to the sky with fly-in wine tastings to Rio Vista Wines. Not since discovering mirrors have eyes been so entranced, taking in views of the Cascade Mountains and Lake Chelan while hopping aboard a floatplane for a 10-minute coast to Rio Vista Wines. Perched along the Columbia River, Rio Vista touts a succinct selection of 10 wines, including award winners cabernet franc—a blend of plum and black currant—and Chardonnay with traces of pineapple, pear, and peach. The mind-boggling mélange Looney Red is the fermented lovechild of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, and cabernet franc. After the 40-minute tasting, pleased palates are shuttled back to Lake Chelan on the floatplane, giving passengers a second chance to spot elusive salmon flash mobs in the waters below.

Chelan Seaplanes

For more than 40 years, the trained and professional pilots at Chelan Seaplanes have been floating passengers through the air on exotic day trips and scenic charter flights. Flights ferry passengers the 25 minutes back and forth to Stehekin, giving them unique views of the Lake Chelan Valley and the snow-topped Cascade Mountains. Passengers pick and choose from a collection of diverse sightseeing tours or climb aboard Chelan's amphibious aircraft for a chartered flight to Seattle and British Columbia. Clyde and his son, Shane, also lead adventurous outdoorsmen on a diverse collection of day-trip packages. Trips fuse flying with an afternoon of kayaking, fly fishing, hiking, or river-rafting, ferrying guests back at the end of the day full of stories about meeting celebrity waterfowl.
