Gibraltar ferry port provides sailings to Morocco serving the biggest port of North Africa, Tangier Med. In 2009 it was decided to launch a ferry service between Gibraltar and Algeciras, the first time in 40 years the cities on either side of the Bay of Gibraltar where linked by sea. The name Gibraltar refers to the famous rock and comes from the Arabic translation of Jebel Tariq (Mountain of Tariq). Before, it was also known as a pillar of Hercules.
