Images and reports on stranded whale watch boat

A group of whale watchers expecting only a three-hour tour got much more after their boat was snagged by a rope off of Nahant and they were forced to spend a long night at sea.

The Boston Harbor Cruises whale watch vessel Cetacea was freed early Tuesday and docked shortly after 8 a.m. at Boston’s Long Wharf. No injuries were reported to any of the 157 passengers or six crew members.
