There are many different ways to explore Morocco – but one option is often overlooked. Many people are unaware of all the excellent options that will allow them to explore Morocco’s magical coastline by boat. Many different cruise lines offer cruises to Morocco or broader itineraries that call at one or more of Morocco’s ports as part of a longer voyage.
Morocco is a popular port of call for many cruise ships, offering a variety of destinations to explore. If you’re planning to visit Morocco by cruise, you will likely make a stop at one of the following ports: Agadir, Safi, Casablanca, Tangier, Ceuta, and/or Melilla.
Agadir is a popular resort town known for its beautiful crescent-shaped beach. It’s also the gateway to the Souss-Massa National Park and the southern desert areas, where you can explore dunes and oases by camel, jeep, or other means. The Paradise Valley in Imouzzer is a must-see excursion from Agadir, and you can also take tours to Marrakesh from here or other coastal destinations.
Safi is a port for those who want to explore the central portion of the Atlantic Coast. Visitors can explore the central medina and Dar el Bahar castle, or head down the coast to beautiful Essaouira or north towards Oualida for the best beaches.
Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city, a bustling port with plenty to see and do. The enormous Hassan II Mosque is a must-visit, and there are plenty of tour options to explore the Old Medina and other sights. You can also consider tours from here to Fez, Rabat, or other imperial cities.
Tangier, known as the “gateway to Africa,” is an interesting destination in its own right. You can explore the well-preserved medina and kasbah with excellent views over to Gibraltar and neighboring Spain. There is also a dynamic and diverse city to discover.
If you’re interested in exploring Morocco by cruise, a Moroccan tour operator can help you plan your itinerary and make the most of your time in each port. They can also offer guidance on local customs and traditions, as well as provide insight into the best activities and sights to see in each destination.
The other way to reach and explore some of Morocco’s northern coastline is on a ferry tour from the resorts of Southern Spain. One-day excursions from Tarifa, or Cadiz, or other departure points in southern Spain will allow you to visit Tangiers. Other ferry tour options will take visitors to Asilah or Tetuan, or to other, smaller coastal destinations where you can get a taste of authentic and traditional Moroccan culture.
These are just some of the many enticing destinations on Morocco’s magical coast that you can visit. The cruise and ferry options outlined above are just some of the many ways to see what this amazing country is all about.
