The unique ceremony was held in place of the traditional graduation, which had been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Graduates from Somerset Island Prep high school took to the water to pick up their diplomas from principal Tom Rompella, who was standing on a docked boat and used a grabber pole device to avoid making hand contact.

According to the Miami Herald newspaper, graduates took a three-hour jet ski training course provided by a local company.

In a statement, Rompella said: ''This final ceremony for our seniors represents the same theme that has played out through the entirety of their time at Island Prep: that no barrier is too large to overcome and that through creativity and hard work we can overcome any challenge.''
