Two men stranded in a kayak in the Gulf of Mexico are now safe thanks to Carnival Cruise Line.
According to a news release on Monday (Jan. 29), the company's Carnival Jubilee ship rescued the floating men, who said their boat sank and that they used a kayak to stay afloat.
The ship’s team members spotted the two off the coast of Isla Mujeres, Mexico and quickly rescued them.
They were welcomed onto the ship safely and were evaluated by the ship’s medical staff and given first aid and food.
The ship’s team and Carnival’s Fleet Operation Center staff in Miami kept in close contact with Mexican Navy officials and arranged a transfer, which was completed shortly after the rescue.
Carnival Jubilee is proceeding with its regular schedule and will visit Mahogany Bay, Roatan on Tuesday (Jan. 30).
