Acts 27
39 When it was day, they did not recognize the land; but they observed a bay with a beach, onto which they planned to run the ship if possible. 40 And they [h]let go the anchors and left them in the sea, meanwhile loosing the rudder ropes; and they hoisted the mainsail to the wind and made for shore. 41 But striking [i]a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the prow stuck fast and remained immovable, but the stern was being broken up by the violence of the waves.

42 And the soldiers’ plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim away and escape. 43 But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim should jump overboard first and get to land, 44 and the rest, some on boards and some on parts of the ship. And so it was that they all escaped safely to land.

I find it a little ignorant that the soldiers had a plan to kill the prisoners. Paul just saved their lives with the knowledge given to him by the Lord and had already proven at the previous port that he had no interest in escaping.

So the front of the boat stuck in the ground and the rear of the boat was getting busted up by the waves. Those that could swim, swam. The rest floated to shore on parts of the boat. Paul’s prophesy had been correct.
