With Gibraltar's location at the entrance of the Mediterranean, it is not surprising that it is considered one of the most important maritime crossroads in the world. Gibraltar is a favourite port of call for cruise liners, with an average of over 220 vessels calling into Gibraltar every year. If you are looking to call into Gibraltar on a slightly smaller yacht, you have a choice of 3 marines, Marina Bay, Ocean Village and Queensway Quay. Vessels arriving in Gibraltar must register at the reporting berth in Marina Bay and crew should expect thorough adherence to procedures due to the variety of illegal trafficking that goes on in the Strait.
If you are arriving in a super yacht and looking for an agent to help you with arrangements we recommend you contact MH Bland Port Agency who have been in the maritime business for the past 200 years! The experienced team will be able to assist you in any way necessary.
