Tour boat stuck off Biscayne Bay

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (WSVN) -- Mechanical problems caused delays for a local tour boat.

The Coast Guard was called out to inspect a tour boat after the owner said it had a steering problem.

The inspection delayed the ship's return to shore for some time as passengers were left stuck on Biscayne Bay. "We were just floating around, dead in the water, and nothing was happening," Jose Cernada said. "We almost thought that the boat was going to, you know, to turn over or something. We were just so scared."

"On Christmas Eve, to be stranded for a couple of hours, messed up our program; all the other tickets we lost," Chet Shah said.

Skyforce HD was over the vessel as well.

For the inconvenience, the owner gave all 18 passengers their money back.
