Mission Statement

The Tampa Seafarers Center is a non-profit, multi-denominational Christian organization that seeks to provide an environment for meeting the physical, social, and spiritual needs of seafarers and others who use the failities of the Port of Tampa.


The Seafarers Center provides it services to the more than 3000+ men and women that come to the Port of Tampa each week on board the cargo and cruise ships that serve our nation. These men and women come from all over the world and work in one of the most dangerous professions known to man. They incur long periods of lonliness and harsh working conditions and often refer to their job as "voluntary incarceration without visitation rights". These Seafarers often come to us in need of caring and just knowing that they are loved. Our mission is to provide them with a "homelike surrounding" where we often times have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with them and just encourage them.

Some of the services provided at the Center include: a phone room, computers with internet service where they can talk to family back home. A clothes closet, recreational room, lounge area with TV, magazines and books are also available for their relaxation. Transportation both to the Center as well as to local businesses and services is provided. A small store is also on-site to provide for some of their personal needs.

Chaplains are available to the Seafarers and all Port personnel for Biblical Guidance and comfort. A Chaplain visits all ships arriving at the Port to check on the welfare of the crews and to offer spiritual services. Worship services are held on board the ship as well as in our Chapel.
