The Pegasus Project has taken thousands of kids onto the Bay for marine environment education aboard Pegasus. We invite you to support the youth program by chartering the vessel for private exploration of the Bay. The Pegasus Project is funded by charter revenues, foundation grants, in-kind contributions, and private donations. Contributions are tax deductible. All net proceeds from your chartered voyage will support the Pegasus Project.
From 1994 through 2004, the Pegasus Project was operated by the Nautilus Institute.
In 2006, Pegasus Voyages was established to continue the Pegasus Project, to enable people to experience the marine wilderness in new and empowering ways.
Pegasus Project's mission is to enable youth to become productive members of a sustainable society through positive outdoor environmental education and by reinforcing life skills. The objectives of Pegasus Project are:

"When our class went sailing on the Pegasus, I was very excited.
At the end of the trip, I was very happy because I got to sit at the very
end of the boat. It was fun and scary at the same time. The Pegasus
is a very big boat and very nice. This was the first time I've been on
a sailing boat that big. When I get on boats, I get scared because I think
that the boat might sink. But now that I have been on Pegasus,
I am not scared any more. This boat experience was a lot of fun."
