Cheap Ferries from Gibraltar to Tangier

Boasting a significant sea hub with an historical value of over 3000 years, Gibraltar remains one of the Mediterranean’s most important port cities. With a vibrant, yet still growing, urban center, plus its close location to the Northern African region, the port of Gibraltar remains busy all year round.

Due to the Strait of Gibraltar’s strategic location as the gateway to the Mediterranean Sea, over 80,000 carrier ships sail through its waters annually. As a result, the port of Gibraltar underwent recent refurbishments, allowing for an increased handling load of over 5,500 vessels a year, 24 hours a day.

One of the major ferry routes from Gibraltar is the connection to Tangier, Morocco. The crossing is operated by Ferrys Rapidos del Sur, also known as FRS. The quickest ferry from their fleet takes about 1 hour, 30 minutes, and crossings depart daily.

FRS is a relatively well-known ferry company throughout the Mediterranean, and also departs from the Spanish cities of Tarifa and Algeciras to Tangier. There are a wide-variety of services onboard their vessels. The Tanger and Tarifa Jets have comfortable seating, viewing areas, snack bars and restrooms for patrons.

Similar to the port of Gibraltar, Tangier is located in the gateway to the Mediterranean Sea. In comparison to other ports in Morocco, Tangier has a good range of modern facilities for passengers, including ATM’s, restaurants, shops, money exchange and travel information desks. Rail, road, and air links are easily accessible from the port of Tangier, allowing for expedient travel throughout the country and northern Africa.

Caution must be made when departing the terminal, particularly with licensed and unlicensed taxis. Be wary to use meters or negotiate a fare if required before leaving the terminal, as failure to do so will usually result in high fares.
