Time ashore is precious for seafarers so we have produced this guide to give seafarers the basic information about where you can find facilities and assistance that are available. Please find information about where you can contact the seafarer centre or welfare worker in each port. We include the contact details, opening times, and facilities available. Telephone numbers are printed with the country code included.
There are many places in the world who call themselves 'Seamans Club' that are commercial businesses. These are not listed in the directory as we only include centres that are members of the International Seafarers' Welfare & Assistance Network (ISWAN), the International Christian Maritime Association (ICMA) or a bona-fide welfare centre who operate for the benefit of seafarers.
You can now download an app with the seafarers' centre directory from here.
