The Maverick Dos fast ferry ran aground in the Balearic Islands last night at 7.55pm as it transported 21 passengers from Ibiza to Formentera. Captain Luis Gascón made sure all of his passengers and six crew members were evacuated to safety by coastguards before he would leave the ferry himself.

Ibiza Harbour Master has launched an investigation into the Maverick Dos accident and says that human error is likely to be to blame for the grounding.

The 39metre long vessel can carry up to 356 people and travel up to 30 knots.

Experts consulted by the Spanish El Mundo newspaper claim the incident could be down to the person driving the boat going too fast.

The Maverick Dos ferry ran aground in a sensitive and protected area, known as the Island of Sa Torreta.

Coastguards rescued everyone on board and they were taken to Formentera - arriving at the Sabina port at 11.30pm.

Baleária, the company that owns the Maverick Dos, is now working on the decontamination and refloating of the ferry.
