The harbor master pilot of the cruise ship was able to turn the ship and avoid the women and the deputy, investigators said.

Skylar Penpasuglia, 19, and Allison Garrett, 20, were enjoying their spring break in Port Canaveral, Florida, when their vacation almost turned into a catastrophe.
Two spring breakers out jet skiing in the Port Canaveral area on Saturday found themselves in danger when their path crossed with an oncoming cruise ship. Brown, working with the Captain and bridge team of the Carnival Magic, maneuvered the vessel away from the boaters while Deputy Primmer pulled both boaters aboard his patrol vessel and out of harm's way.
Brown veered the cruise ship away from the jet skiers, giving Primmer just enough time to get both jet skiers into his boat and to back the boat away from the potential disaster.
Passengers on the cruise ship gathered near the boat's rails to witness the rescue attempt.
Skylar Penpasuglia, 19, and Allison Garrett, 20, had been maneuvering their jet ski near the mouth of the Port Canaveral harbor on Saturday afternoon when they flipped over and fell into the water.
While there might seem to be plenty of room for everyone out on the open ocean, a marine traffic incident nearly led to a group of jet skiers getting run over by a Carnival Cruise Line ship in a Florida harbor.
Capt. Doug Brown was at the helm of the Carnival Magic, saw the jet skiers in the channel and alerted Primmer, who was on duty in the harbor in a Sheriff's Marine Unit patrol boat. Brown's quick actions also gave "Deputy Primmer the extra seconds he needed to save the young girls".
Garrett took to Facebook following the incident to thank Primmer for his actions. "He was truly a hero yesterday,".
