Fifteen passengers of a spear-fishing boat, as well as the vessel's captain and a dog, were rescued near the Golden Gate Bridge Thursday night after the craft began flooding following a crash into the rocky shoreline.

ABC 7 reports that the boat, called the "New Seeker," left Emeryville at 6 a.m. Thursday "for a day of salmon fishing at Point Reyes."

As they returned., the 50-foot vessel hit the rocks near Kirby Cove on the Marin County side of the bridge, the Chron reports.

According to Coast Guard Sector San Francisco Lieutenant Luciana Ganley, boats from the Coast Guard and Marin County as well as a helicopter from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office responded following a distress call from the boat at 4:40 p.m., as the vessel ran aground and began to fill with water.

"It started coming into the shore and got kind of beached and it looked like it took on some water and the next thing we know, there is the Coast Guard and firemen," a witness told ABC 7.

The Chron reports that the boat contained 15 passengers, a captain, and a dog described by ABC 7 as "a yellow Labrador retriever." All were rescued without injury, Ganley says, and were "driven to Fort Baker for questioning and for an assessment" following the incident.

Speaking with the Chron, a spokesperson with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area says that the vessel will be salvaged from the shoreline where it landed, and no fuel of any kind was spilled into the water during the wreck.
