Port San Sebastian de la Gomera (Canary Islands), managed by the Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spain), expects to receive ~100 calls from 15 different cruise brands in 2022, confirming the recovery of cruising after the shutdown due to the global COVID crisis.
La Gomera offers an exclusive destination with plenty of surprises for cruisers like the UNESCO heritage National Park of Garajonay and a pair of amazing beaches located only 100 m from the port.
Statistics from all ports that are managed by Tenerife Ports show the mentioned recovery after the crisis and in some cases increasing in comparison to 2019.
Last year La Gomera welcomed 87 cruise ship calls, 36 more than in 2019. El Hierro (Puerto de la Estaca, Canary Islands) managed 33 cruise ships in 2021, which is 3 times the figures achieved back in 2019. Santa Cruz de la Palma (Canary Islands) handled 90 cruise calls in 2021, which is less than in 2019. However, reservations for 2022 increased as well as the number of cruise companies visiting the island.
The Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is committed to the traffic in all cruise ports and invests in improving facilities. New bollards are being placed in ports as well as the improvement of facilities for a better guest experience, like the Yokohama fenders for liners installed in La Gomera.
All ports managed by the Port Authority and the local companies operating in Tenerife Ports follow the sanitary protocols according to the required measures and implement procedures to guarantee the safety and health of passengers.
