The Bahamas ferry was on route to Blue Lagoon Island on Tuesday (14 November) for a shore excursion when it was hit by rough seas and became submerged.
A 75-year-old passenger was tragically killed.
Another passenger, Kelly Schissel has described the frightening turn of events.
She said: “We saw the water coming in and people started to sink.
“We all jumped in and it was pretty rough waves. A lot of people were just trying to stay above water.”
