Question Morocco?

We're just about to set off to the Canaries and considering popping into Morocco on the way. I'd like to hear from anyone who has cruised there? Safety sailing on the coast, safe mooring to leave the boat and venture inland, fishing nets? Etc

Re: Morocco?

We've been to Mohammedia (dirty and loud) and El Jadida (30$ per night to be allowed to anchor in the harbour, no marina and no facilities) end of 2016.



In both places it was a serious hassle to clear in and out (in Morocco you always have to do that when changing the port). We did not feel very welcome as yachties and we had to leave our passports and boat papers at the immigration police which i absolutely disliked.



There are MANY unlit fishing boats along the coast, and some of the bigger ones are trawling serious nets unlit nets between them. Navigating the coast at night was a real pita.



On land, Morocco was really nice. It's cheap, friendly people (apart from one rip-off guide in Agadir), good transport per train and there is very nice food. I would consider visiting the country again, but not by boat.

I have heard 'less than nice things' about these places (Tanger as well)
That is why we opted for Rabat , modern marina , *very* friendly staff and customs that are used to clearing in foreign yachts
