Casino Ship Escapade Back to Business

The casino ship Escapade, that got stranded on a sandbar off the coast of Tybee Island, Georgia last month is back at sea.


Namely, the vessel, owned by  Tradewinds Casino Cruise was reported to have headed out to open waters for the first time since its grounding on Wednesday night, according to local media.

The Escapade casino ship ran aground on her maiden voyage near the coast of Georgia, USA, around midnight, July 16th.

A tow company was called in to assist with the salvage of the vessel and the removal of passengers, but the initial efforts were unsuccessful, leading to a towlines breakage.

The stranded Escapade casino ship managed to free itself on its own with a little push from the high tide and returned to its home dock at the Bull River Marina the day after.
