Kelly Rowland rented a boat with a few friends over the weekend in Provincetown, Mass., with the intention of doing some whale watching when the vessel broke down.

The boat became “disoriented in the five-to-six foot waves and fog that had rolled in,” a TowboatUS Provincetown employee told E! News. Explaining the rescue, the source added that once they learned the group required aid, “The US Coast Guard was able to triangulate their position.”

Initially the Coast Guard merely had to guide Rowland’s boat back to the coast in Provincetown. However, on the way back to land, the boat completely broke down. For the remaining four miles, the vessel had to be towed and didn’t dock until 10 p.m. – 12 hours after the group had set sail.

During her stay in the New England beach town, Rowland appeared to have had some better moments, which she shared via her Instagram account. “Loving P-Town!!!!!! The happiest place on Earth!” she captioned a photo of Provincetown’s The Little Red store she posted to Instagram. She posted another picture of her and a local chef captioned, “Me and my girl Christina Spencer, the Chef at Victor’s in P-Town!!! This food is absolutely amazing! #passionforfood.”
