Freight ferries to Gibraltar Gibraltar

The Strait of Gibraltar is a strategic entrance to the Mediterranean Sea. The strait is a busy shipping area and convenient link using freight ferries to Gibraltar from North Africa to Spain. Although Gibraltar is British controlled it is only a short drive from Spain.

There are lots of different passenger ferry and cargo routes across this narrow expanse of water. One of the routes is Tangiers to Gibraltar. FRS operates an infrequent freight ferries to Gibraltar service from Tangiers. The Atlantic Ocean merges with the Mediterranean at Tangiers.

Tangiers is an ancient city with a wealth of history and famous sites such as Tangier Grand Mosque and the Sultan’s Palace (Dar el Makzhen). The port at Tangiers is easily reached on the N16 road. The port access road is well signposted. Freight ferries to Gibraltar can be reserved on the internet or by calling FRS’s Reservation Centre.

Journey time from Tangiers across the Strait of Gibraltar is around 1 hour, 30 minutes. Boats on the route offer comfortable seats and lounges as well as the latest in stabilising technology. There is an onboard shop which, as it is coming from outside Europe, sells a full range of duty free articles.

Passengers going through the Strait of Gibraltar get good views of the supposed Pillars of Hercules: Monte Hacho at Cueta on the North African coast and the Rock of Gibraltar. The port at Gibraltar is mainly a cargo facility and offers good handling services and parking. The A7-Autovia del Mediterraneo motorway can be joined after Customs at the Gibraltar-Spain border.
