Man Dies After Falling Off “Get Lei’d” Party Cruise Boat in Boston Harbor

Divers recovered a body early on Sunday morning of a 21 year-old man, on the bottom of Boston Harbor near Peddocks Island. The man fell overboard from the “Get Lei’d” party cruise on Saturday night around 8:30 p.m., according to Coast Guard officials.

The man was later identified as Aaron Dibella from Peabody, according to the Plymouth District Attorney’s Office. He was on the Provincetown II ferry which departs from Boston’s Seaport District.

Bay State Cruises said the man was “engaging in horseplay” on the vessel. Rescue attempts from the boat and in the water were unsuccessful, according to the operator. Several hours later, his body was recovered from the bottom of Boston Harbor where the depth was 45 feet. The full statement from Bay State Cruise Company is shown below.

State Police continue to investigate the fatal incident.

  1. We know that a lei is a garland of flowers that is used in Hawaii and Polynesia to welcome guests.
    There is a western gala named “Lei’d” and formal wear is required — I highly doubt the name has a double meaning.
    However, in this case of the poor kid falling off the ship, I’d say raucous activity was taking place and the word ‘Lei’d’ was indicative of perhaps the out-of-control party. Very sad what liquor can do — he lost his precious life.
