MY Pegasus

MY Pegasus is a long-established Egyptian liveaboard and operates mini southern Red Sea diving cruises of 3 nights duration from Marsa Alam. At a length of 27 metres and a beam of 6.5 metres, Pegasus is by no means a large liveaboard. However the maximum of 16 divers are accommodated comfortably in 8 twin-share cabins, sharing 3 bathrooms.

Length: 27 metres / 89 foot
Beam: 7 metres / 21 foot
Cruise: 7 knots
Red Sea diving cruises on MY Pegasus

A complete refit in 2010 means Pegasus feels new as guests relax in the air-conditioned saloon complete with TV, DVD and music system. There is also a shaded open air area plus a sundeck for those who wish to work on their tans.

As one of the Emperor diving fleet, you can be sure of high service levels and the 7 crew members will do all they can to ensure a comfortable and fun liveaboard cruise experience. For those short on time or who wish to split their time between land and sea, a short Southern Red Sea diving cruise on MY Pegasus might be the perfect fit.
