This summer, there's a new option for a group retreat or incentive trip in the American Southwest. Papillon Airways Inc. and Forever Houseboats have partnered to create the "Fly and Float Experience," programs lasting three days and two nights. The first two days are aboard Forever Houseboat's signature 59-foot XT or 70-foot Millennium houseboat, with a crew to beach and anchor the vessel. The final day offers a tour on Papillon's EC-130 B4 EcoStar helicopter.

Each Forever Houseboat has private staterooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living area, flat-screen TVs, climate control, a rooftop sundeck, a water slide, and, on the 70-foot Millennium models, a hot tub on the top deck. The 59-foot XT sleeps 10 people in four queen-size staterooms and one queen-size sleeper sofa; the 70-foot Millennium houseboat sleeps 12 in four private queen-size staterooms and two queen-size sleeper sofas. Papillon's EC-130 B4 EcoStar has an oversize cabin and forward-facing, raised platform, theater-style seating with 180-degree unobstructed views.

Three different tours are offered.
