Leaving Ceuta and the port of Algeciras

Up a bit later than intended, but there are plenty of sailings out of Ceuta, nearly every hour. They do seem to be a cartel though and there is no difference in the prices. We bought tickets for a Euroferrys sailing at 10-30, and it cost €33 each, which I though was a bit on the steep side for a 35 minute crossing. Still there weren't exactly any other options.
Easy enough embarking, and the boat,the Euroferry Pacifica, was pretty smart, and it wasn't particularly busy. There were plenty of seats on board and you could get out at the back to see the scenery. There was a cafetira/bar which wasn't that expensive, and there was a duty free shop on board.
Two massive turb propellers at the back of the boat, and when they kicked in once outside of the harbour the boat was flying across the water.
The Port at Algeciras is the docking point for ferries from Tanger and Ceuta, though there also seemed to be boats in from the Canary Islands.
Coming out of the ferry terminal keep left and walk up to the main road,and turn left. Take the second right and go up and you will come to the bus terminal. Here you can get buses to most destinations in Spain. you buy tiakets at the office for all destinations, apart from La Linea, which you just pay on the bus.
The RENFE train station is just up the raod past the bus terminal. Both are about a 10-15 minute walk from the ferry terminal.
We got a local service bus from here to La Linea,cost €2-05 each. It took about half an hour,and drops you in the bus station at La Linea, which is close to the sea front. Come out of the bust station and turn to walk down the street to the left for Gibraltar. The big rock in front of you is a bit of a give away for the rest of the directions :-)
