TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. (WFLA.com) - The crew of Tarpon Springs based Aqua Quest was greeted by family and friends Wednesday morning, ending an ocean journey that included a stay in a Honduran jail.

On May 5, the crew of six men were jailed in Puerta Lempira, Honduras, on weapons smuggling charges that were later dropped. The ship began its journey home after the charges were dropped and the men were released from jail.

The Aqua Quest is based at Marine Ways Marina in Tarpon Springs. The boat conducts salvage missions, recovering materials from sunken ships.
