The mission of the Seamen’s Center of Wilmington, Inc., is to meet the needs of the seafarers who visit the Ports in the State of Delaware. Our goal is to make their time in port a rewarding one by providing personal, practical and spiritual assistance. A warm welcome is extended to ease the pain of loneliness and isolation and to offer a respite from the hazards of the sea.
SCW is coordinating vaccinations and boosters on board and at local pharmacies for seafarers in the ports of Delaware (Port of Wilmington, Oceanport, and Delaware City Refinery). If you would like to receive vaccinations, please email us at email@example.com or call us at +1(302)575-1300.
Check out this video that the Chiquita Passion crew made for us! They are in port every two weeks and are some of the only crew members able to get off of their vessel to use our services.
