Three Moroccans were rescued after trying to cross the Strait in a kayak

The services of Salvamento Marítimo, a public service responsible for maritime safety in Spanish waters, rescued three Moroccan migrants on Tuesday morning when they were disoriented aboard a kayak in the waters of the Strait of Gibraltar. According to the EFE agency, the three Moroccans hoped to reach the coast of Cadiz.

According to Salvamento Marítimo sources, the rescue operation took place shortly after 04:00 when a merchant ship alerted the traffic coordination center in Tarifa (Cádiz) about the presence of a small boat in the strait. The ship Salvamar Arcturus, which was dispatched, located the boat while it was sailing about 4.8 kilometers southeast of Tarifa.

The three migrants, all men, were in good health, it said, adding that they had been transferred to the port of Algeciras.
