About Acciona Trasmediterránea
With its roots going back to 1917 Acciona Trasmediterránea now operates extensively within the Western Mediterranean Sea and out into the North Atlantic Ocean serving the Canary Islands. The operational fleet comprises 25 vessels.
Daily services link both Barcelona and Spain's third largest city, Valencia, with ports on the main Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. Crossing times vary according to the specific route and whether the service operates during the daytime or overnight.
There are up to two weekly services from Cádiz serving several key ports within the Canary Islands including Arrecife, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and Puerto Rosario. This service is usually operated by the 2010-built, 31,000t M/F Jose Maria Entrecanales or M/F Albayzin, built in 2004. It takes 30 hours to reach to first port of call.
The archipelago is also served by a weekly departure from Barcelona with the sailing to Las Palmas taking 66 hours. There are, of course, inter-island services linking the main ports within the Canary Islands.
Regular services connect Almería with Ghazaquet (Algeria) and Nador (Morocco) and there are also regular sailings linking both Almería and Málaga with the Spanish enclave of Melilla.
Acciona Trasmediterránea vessels operate a frequent service across the Straits of Gibraltar, linking Algeciras with Tangiers (Morocco) and the enclave of Ceuta, with crossing times varying between 60 and 90 minutes.
