Pegasus cruises is a well – established, friendly, family-run company based in Tolo offering leisure mini-cruises to the picturesque Saronic islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros and the enchanting historic castle-town of Monemvasia.
Three brothers started the company in 1967 with a wooden, caique-style boat named “Mantalena” , which carried 50 passengers. The programme was varied and fun-filled with barbecues, picnics and cruises to Hydra and Spetses, thus began the tradition of day cruises in the Argos-Nafplion-Tolo area.
In 1976 the lovely wooden yacht-style boat “Pegasus” was built in Tolo, the work being done by local craftsmen and the brothers themselves. The “Pegasus” quickly grew popular and renowned throughout the area. In 1979 the “Hermes” , a fiberglass boat which could travel at 26 knots, was purchased. The longer cruises to Poros and Monemvasia were thus added to the programme.
The spacious new luxury cruise “M/V Mantalena” , 45 meters, carrying 500 passengers, was built to replace the “Hermes”, and to widen the range and comfort of the cruises.
In 1997 the “Alkyonis”, 40 meters long with a capacity of 300 passengers, joined the other boats, to continue to meet the needs of the growing tourist trade, to offer cruises of interest with friendly service and in comfortable style. The head office of the company, Pegasus Cruises, is located in Tolo, near Nafplion, Greece. The cruise programme runs from late March to late October. In addition to the ever-popular day cruises to Monemvasia and the islands Hydra, Poros and Spetses, the boats offer a variety of special cruises such as picnics, barbecues and evening cruises. The boats are also available for charter, for group cruises and for private parties, receptions and celebrations.
