Casco Bay Ferry Jumper Gets Slapped With a Massive Fine from the U.S. Coast Guard

Here’s a story you don’t see too often… someone who jumped off of the Bay Mist, one of the ferries operated by Casco Bay Lines, has been hit with a $2,500.00 fine from the US Coast Guard, according to the Portland Press Herald.

The paper reports that a passenger on one of the ferries jumped off of the boat as it was heading back to the Maine State Pier in Portland in July.

The Coast Guard said in a statement to the Press Herald that the jumper swam to the other side of the channel and was then arrested. The Coast Guard announced that this person will face a $2,500.00 fine for the stunt.

Jumping from a ferry underway in the harbor can cause serious injury or death because of the possibility of drowning or getting sucked into a turning propeller. It also puts the vessel, crew and passengers at risk if they have to stop in the middle of a highly-traveled area to conduct an investigation or rescue operation.
