Tangier trip

I am very anxious to take a day trip to Tangier. Unfortunately, the only day I can go is a Monday, June 30. The agencies I can locate do not run trips on Mondays. Does anyone have a suggestion?

You can get the bus to Algeciras and then the ferry across.

Bus takes 2hrs 40 minutes.... not sure how long the crossing is.

Bus times are here: avanzabus.com/web/archivos/base/File/Horario…

Ferry times are here: http://www.frs.es/ they also have info on their organised day trip on the site.

Must admit it's a long old day :(

During the summer there is a phenomenon called "Operación Paso del Estrecho" when the police and civil protection services anticipate vast numbers of Moroccans coming down from all over Europe to cross the Straits in order to enjoy time with their families during the annual summer vacations. Think the main build up is July and August. Also the religious fests surrounding Ramadan can affect numbers travelling. I believe that Ramadan starts at end of June.

My advice is to think of somewhere else to visit on that day. But if you are intent on doing the trip get down to Tarifa the night before and use the short ferry hop over to Tanger Ville using FRS. and take the first ferry out.
