The existence of port activity in the Bay of Cadiz dates back to 1104 A.C., . Since then the concept of the port and maritime traffic has greatly evolved, but the essence is still the same: a maritime fishing bay that was born and has grown rocked by the to-ing and fro-ing of the sea.

Cadiz, Puerto Real and El Puerto de Santa María are the three municipal districts in which the four commercial docks and two fishing ports that rely on the Port Authority are located, and which are complemented by repair centres and naval construction, off-shore and aeronautics, as well as water sport complexes.
Because of its geographical position, between the two great flows of European-African and American-Mediterranean sea traffic, the Port of the Bay of Cadiz has situated itself as the Southern Port of Europe. Connected to land by road and rail access, and only 40 kilometres from Jerez Airport, the port infrastructures of the Bay of Cadiz offer the best conditions as regards connectivity.

The offer is completed with a free trade tax-free Industrial zone, a passenger Maritime Station, a Border Inspection Point, a Traffic Control Centre and an Integrated Communication Centre, among other infrastructures and services.

In spite of all this, the human team is the greatest asset on which the Bay of Cadiz Port Authority relies.

Professional qualified and experienced employees who give their knowledge and strength to the company´s service.

Furthermore, as a port is not a static entity that remains immovable with time, but rather, a live business that adapts itself to new needs, the Port Authority of the Bay of Cadiz, in a sure fire bet for new technology, places this website at the disposal of all citizens so that they too can surf without sea.
