A pair of divers found themselves alone in open water near Key Biscayne on Sunday after their charter boat left without them, according to the Miami Herald.

The men, who were part of a large group that dove at two sites on Sunday, surfaced to find that the boat was gone, according to the report. The men were stranded about three miles off of Key Biscayne for more than two hours until being rescued by a passing yacht.

The operator of the charter did not answer questions about the incident, according to the Herald.
