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.
"First time on Inter-shipping, nothing to complain about"
I found the whole experience to be relatively smooth, and professionally done. The ship left 30 mins after the scheduled time, but tbh I think thats the actual time its meant to leave and they put the 'scheduled' time down to make sure people are not late.

"4pm Tarifa to Tangier, & return, both weekdays, April 2018"
Having heard & read some less than positive reviews about doing a ferry crossing to Tangier I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy & enjoyable the sailing was! My husband & were foot passengers, with large cases. We booked on line - easy. Parking at the port was easy & secure. Check in was fine - though staff took a while to access tickets & looked puzzled at our e-print out, but all was well. Queuing was orderly & calm, boarding well organised & appeared very safe, & the ship was ultra modern & immaculate. We both loved the sailing & were blessed with fairly calm seas & clear views. It was wonderful, actually - though I do love ferry crossings! Disembarkation was as good as embarkation. We had been told (or read) in advance to queue early for passport stamping on board on exit from Tarifa - this helped, & was not made clear to other non-locals. Once done, & when the process began after we left port, it was swift & efficient, we could relax & enjoy the crossing. Don't be put off my hand luggage needing to be left at the side of the car deck during sailing. All was safe & secure, I think, & I guessed that the car deck was locked during sailing, as is standard practice.

i went to tangier port early thinking i will need the extra time to get the boarding pass issued, the office was not yet open but the young lady still issued me with the boarding passes. it took her 2 minutes, so i went up to customs and the young rep of inter shipping met greeted me and he was very helpfull in filling out the boarder form. Then once i went through customs I thought i would have to wait 2 hours for ny ferry when the same young man appeared and said I could take the earlier ferry which was about to leave. He radioed through and I was the last on it but it saved me waiting for 2 more hours for the next one on which i was booked, This was at no extra cost, I tipped the young man generously.
