The U.S. Coast Guard is currently monitoring the Cetacea whale-watching ferry that ran aground in Lynn Harbor, Massachusetts at 8:20 p.m., August 27.


When the ferry ran aground about a quarter of a mile from the pier, Coast Guard crews from Station Point Allerton launched a rescue crew aboard a 47-foot motor life boat to provide a safety zone and stand by to assist if the situation deteriorated.

High tide was predicted to be at 1:00 a.m. The Cetacea, with 13 passengers and four crew aboard, was expected to re-float on the incoming tide.

“We to want to make sure the passengers, crew, and vessel are all safe,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Paul Brancaleoni, the operations unit controller at the 1st Coast Guard District Command Center in Boston, Massachusetts.

“We’ll stay on scene and monitor it closely to ensure they are.”
