Soon after Morocco reopened its borders, Baleària started a ferry service from the French port of Sète to Nador.

The vessel is REGINA BALTICA, with according to the company’s website, a Moroccan crew.

GNV is already operating this route (and 5 Moroccan routes in total, from Italy, France and Spain)

Baleària has scheduled eleven crossings, in order to meet the demand from people of Moroccan origin residing in European countries. (six trips from France and five from Morocco).

The last crossing is planned for September 7, but the company is exploring the possibility of more trips.

All passengers must present a negative PCR test carried out no more than 48 hours before travel. For Moroccans living in Northern France, Belgium or Holland this is a challenge, because of the driving distance and time.

The capacity of the vessel is currently restricted to 1,300 passengers (1,675) and 300  vehicles (350).
