Travel from Tangier to Southern Spain

We are going to Morocco to visit friends in Rabat later this month. During the trip, we have decided to visit southern Spain as well. We plan to take the train from Rabat to Tangier, and the ferry to Spain and rent a car in Algeciras. In looking at various references I see that the ferries run from Tangier to Tarifa, and from Tangier Med to Algeciras. I would like advice as to whether we should take the ferry to Tarifa and a taxi to Algeciras, or take a taxi to Tangier Med and take the ferry directly to Algeciras. On the return trip, we plan to leave Seville, drive to Algeciras to return the car, and then catch a ferry back to Tangier and return to Rabat by train - all in one day. Is that feasible?

Petit taxi from Tanger train station to Tanger town ferry terminal, www.frs.es ferry from Tanger town to Tarifa, then the free FRS shuttle bus (show your ferry ticket) to Algeciras.

Or... grand taxi from Tanger train station to Tanger Med ferry terminal than one of several ferry companies crossing to Algeciras.

Even better, fly.
