The Clipper Odyssey cruise ship was floating again Sunday after running aground on rocks in Alaska.

The ship scraped to a halt in the Aleutian Islands near the community of Dutch Harbor on Saturday night.

There were no reports of injuries.

Passengers donned life jackets and headed into rafts. Several ships in the area came by to transport some of them to the port of Unalaska.

They ferried 122 passengers and 31 crew members to land while other crew members and coast guard sailors stayed behind to inspect the damage.

The accident punched holes in a fuel tank, causing the ship that caters to eco-tourists to spill about 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel.

The tide lifted the Clipper Odyssey off the rocks Sunday morning and the vessel began the 65-kilometre trip to Unalaska.

The mishap occurred on the seventh day of a 12-day cruise.
