Welcoming Seafarers

The Corpus Christi International Seamen’s Center is a “home away from home” for seafarers visiting the Port of Corpus Christi. Chartered in 1974 as a non-profit organization under the laws of the State of Texas, the Center has, during their existence, served hundreds of thousands of visiting seafarers.

The Center exists as the result of a deep desire and concern within the local maritime industry, followed by active support and involvement of the community and local churches, to provide a safe and welcoming recreational and spiritual environment on land for those who have chosen the sea as their livelihood.
