The Seafarers Center is an ecumenical ministry of hospitality for seafarers visiting the Twin Ports of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin. The Seafarers Center has served seafarers for more than 50 years. We exist because of the support of church bodies and congregations along with individuals and port businesses who are concerned about the wellbeing of those who have chosen the seas as their livelihood.
Your financial support makes this vital ministry possible. Your contributions enable the Seafarers Center to fulfill its core mission of hospitality to seafarers who visit the Twin Ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI.
Your donations help the Seafarers Center visit seafarers while their ships are in port, provide transportation for seafarers to go ashore, help to cover the salaries of staff, and assist in paying for other basic operation costs.

The Seafarers Center aims to visit every international ship that docks in the Twin Ports. Ship visiting is a way to welcome seafarers and to let them know that they are seen and appreciated. The shipping season usually runs from the beginning of April through the third week of December.
Ship visitors need a valid TWIC card. You will be accompanied on your first visits by someone who has already been visiting ships. Once you are comfortable visiting you will be contacted to go on your own to ships based on your availability.
If interested, contact the Seafarers Center: firstname.lastname@example.org
From November 1st until the international shipping season ends the Seafarers Center provides every seafarer with a ditty bag.
