The footage, which was posted on Facebook today, shows thick black smoke billowing from the boat, just feet away from children playing on Camp Bay beach.
The concerned dad, who shared the clip, said: “Our kids at the beach having to breathe this shit! … venga ya hombre!”
“Down at camp bay and this is just ridiculous what we have to inhale when they can do this else were out and not near a beach full of kids,” said a resident who also shared a video on Facebook.
Residents slammed the 12-second clip in which the smoke can be seen spreading across the sky.
It comes after it was revealed last week that more than 80% of Spain is exposed to air pollution levels deemed ‘unacceptable’ by the WHO.
More than 6,000 people die each year in Spain from illnesses related to air pollution.
