Strait of Gibraltar

From Europe to Africa in 35 Minutes


Since 2000, FRS Iberia and FRS Maroc have been operating year-round fast ferry sailings across the Strait of Gibraltar between Spain and Morocco.

The main FRS route between Tarifa (Spain) and the buzzing port of Tangier (Morocco) is the shortest seaway between the two continents and takes a mere 35 minutes. In addition, FRS also connects Tangier with the ports of Algeciras and Gibraltar. Since summer 2008, FRS also connects Algeciras with the Spanish enclave Ceuta.

Further, FRS established new shipping lines that connect the Moroccan port Tangier Med with the ports of Algericas, Gibraltar and Motril with its modern RoPax ferries. In 2018, FRS broadened its service offerings in the region by taking over Motril to Melilla service from another market participant. The RoPax ferry "Vronskiy" operates daily on the route between Melilla - Motril.

With its modern high-speed ferries FRS has become the market leader for passenger and car crossings to and from Tangier. FRS ferry experience can be supplemented with a variety of organised land excursions in and around Tangier.

Every year, FRS Iberia carries 1.8 million passengers and 432,000 cars.
