Six Cuban men aboard a blue, wooden boat landed on the beach Whale Harbor in the Upper Florida Keys on Friday.
The men, who were all said to be in good health, told authorities they left Matanzas, Cuba about four days earlier, The Miami Herald reports.
They will likely be processed by the U.S. Border Patrol and sent back to Cuba by the Coast Guard, the newspaper said.
Migration from Cuba to Florida has slowed considerably since the Obama administration ended the nation’s “wet-foot, dry-foot” policy which allowed Cubans reaching U.S. soil by sea to stay.
