The Seafarers' Centre operates with a part-time chaplain and volunteers. It is open 18:00 to 21:00 daily, (except Sundays) when ocean-going ships are in port. The Centre can be opened at other times with a minimum of 1 hour notice by contacting the Centre.

Our van takes up to 10 seafarers. Call the Seafarers’ Centre (807) 344-8241 a minimum of 1 hour before you would like to be picked up.

Seafarers should wait for a pick-up at the gate of the elevator; for Thunder Bay Terminals in the Taxi and Visitor parking lot.

The Port Chaplain or a volunteer ship visitor will visit with 24 hours of a ship arriving in Thunder Bay and an appointment for a pick-up can be made at that time.
