Since the year 2000, incidents have occurred on the routes that connect Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma or La Gomera.
The maritime accidents in the Canary Islands have played a leading role in the first and second decades of this century. Since the year 2000, incidents have occurred on the routes that connect Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma or La Gomera.
The first accident of this century goes back to 2000. The Tauro Volcano collided in the port of Morro Jable in Fuerteventura with 390 passengers.
Also, the Tacande volcano collided in 2005 against some rocks and was almost adrift, three miles from Los Cristianos. The two floating chambers prevented it from sinking.
The short circuit in a truck caused a fire in 2008 in the Volcán de Taburiente. It made the route Los Cristianos, La Gomera and La Palma, and 300 passengers were on board. The ship reached the port of Los Cristianos.
The Volcano of Taburiente suffered another incident in 2014 when a truck fire broke out in one of its warehouses. The ship sailed between La Gomera and Tenerife. A year before broke the footbridge of the port of Melilla.
The Tamasite Volcano also collided last year with the jetty of the La Esfinge dock in the Puerto de la Luz and Las Palmas. The accident occurred 13 minutes after heading towards the capital of Tenerife.
