The San Jose yacht ran aground on Bartolome Island in the Galapagos on Monday morning. According to the Andean Travel Company, the yacht was pulled against rocks by strong water currents, sustained damages to its hull, and is currently stranded. Fortunately, none of the passengers or crew were injured in this incident.
The Andean Travel Company noted that "it is currently unknown if the San Jose will be able to continue its operations at some point, as the outcome unfortunately goes beyond our control."
