      Isle Royale Queen III cruise crashes into rocks

      Passengers aboard the Isle Royale Queen III cruise in Marquette on Tuesday night were given quite a scare when the vessel crashed into rocks.

      Around 10:45 p.m., the 75 foot passenger boat was carrying an undisclosed number of tourists and crew members when it crashed. The boat struck rocks underneath the surface of Lake Superior just off Presque Isle Park. There were no injuries reported in the crash.

      The U.S. Coast Guard responded to the incident. The boat was able to make it back to Marquette's lower harbor on its own, but Coast Guard officials say the vessel suffered damage to the port propulsion system.

      The Isle Royale Three cancelled all cruises this week up until Labor Day Weekend. An exact schedule is expected to be determined by midweek.
