Inter Shipping is a relatively young Moroccan ferry company, having been established in 2012, operating crossings in the Strait of Gibraltar, connecting southern Spain with Morocco in North Africa.
Providing an inter-continental service, the routes from Algeciras and Tarifa to Tangier Med and Tangier only take an hour, with multiple crossings on offer every day. Subsequently, travelling with Inter Shipping represents a favourable way of hopping between the two nations, given the frequency of sailings and reliability of their modern fleet, with one vessel built as recently as 2011, Nova Star.
Inter Shipping’s ferries are able to make the crossings in such time thanks to their high speeds, with Maria Dolores, Detroit Jet and Amman reaching thirty five knots. Nova Star, the youngest ship, cruises at just twenty knots, but carries the most passengers, with a capacity of one thousand two hundred and twelve, and has room for four hundred and fifty vehicles. As the largest and most frequently used ferry, Nova Star boasts two restaurants, duty-free shops, a casino, spa and one hundred and sixty three cabins.
