M H Bland

Strength in Unity


Established in Gibraltar by Marcus Henry Bland in 1810, MH Bland & Co. Ltd. has a long and unrivalled history and tradition in maritime commerce. Today, this heritage is firmly upheld alongside a vision for the future as the company’s spheres of activity grow within marine and tourism sectors.


MH Bland Port Agency is the market leader and is central to the Group’s wider marine interests. We are a member of the Multiport Ship Agents Network and comply with its stringent membership codes. The Agency is particularly active in handling cruise liners. With offices in Gibraltar, Algeciras and Ceuta we are ideally placed to service our clients; whatever their needs or the location in the Strait of Gibraltar.

MH Bland Marine Services operates a fleet of harbourcraft, tugs and barges to deliver provisions and lubricants to vessels calling at Gibraltar port. Activities include container handling, vehicle transhipment, bulk cargoes, salvage and the delivery of ships stores to vessels in the bay.


Calypso Tours operates a fleet of coaches providing excursions around Gibraltar and Southern Spain and complements the interests of our Port Agency, Travel Agency, the Cable Car and Dolphin World excursions.

The Cable Car is a unique tourist attraction that forms an integral part of Gibraltar’s tourist infrastructure. The company built and opened this facility in 1966 and operates a self-service restaurant and souvenir shop at “The Top of the Rock” station.

MH Bland Travel Services complements the shipping Agency’s activities in servicing the cruise line industry by specialising in the sale of cruise holidays within a fully-fl edged I.A.T.A. Travel Agency. As well as offering a complete range of holiday services, this highly experienced team manages a successful Cruise Club
for local and expatriate residents of the region.
