The group originally set sail for a day of whale watching, when their vessel became “disoriented in the five-to-six-foot waves and fog that had rolled in,” an employee at TowboatUS Provincetown confirmed to E! News.
“The US Coast Guard was able to triangulate their position” after learning that the group needed help, the employee added.
While they were being escorted by the Coast Guard back to Provincetown, Rowland’s boat broke down. The party then had to be towed the remaining four miles to shore.
The former Destiny’s Child singer, her friends and the crew arrived on land at around 10 p.m., after being at sea for 12 hours.
In the end, the entire group was said to be “tired and thankful,” the employee added.
