About Event

As one of the busiest maritime avenues in the world, the Strait of Gibraltar sees more than 300 container ships per day, not including the ferries that travel between the various ports in the area, as well as a large number of fishing and sports boats; this poses a risk not only of the collision but also of discomfort if the vessels pass too close to the swimming pool.

Despite all the available data to predict the general flow of currents in the Strait, its calculation is not mathematical and we can find unexpected and punctual currents that can hinder the advance and direction of the crossing.
