by at . Comments

Russell Crowe had to be bailed out by the U.S. Coast Guard over the weekend after a kayaking trip went wrong off the coast of New York's Long Island.

The star, who is in the area filming Darren Aronofsky's Noah, launched from Cold Spring Harbor Saturday afternoon, but got lost at sea as it grew dark.

Crowe and a friend managed to make their way to shore, beaching their kayaks in Huntington Bay, nearly 10 miles east from where they had set out.

The coast guard was patrolling the area and heard the 48-year-old calling out around 10 p.m. Crowe and his friend were brought to Huntington Harbor.

"It wasn't really a rescue," a Coast Guard spokesman said. "Really, more of just giving someone a lift." The men were wearing life vests and uninjured.

Crowe Tweeted at 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, "Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way... 4 hrs 30 mins, 7m (11.2km)."

And he later expounded, writing, "We knew where exactly where we were, paddling around from csh into wind, we ran out of day. Grand adventure eh."
