What we offer

The Auckland Seafarers Centre is across the road from the wharves and a short 5 minute walk from the Ports of Auckland TINLEY STREET GATE where the Security van will drop seafarers. This makes the Centre very popular and accessible to the seafarers who come into the port of Auckland. The road that separates the port and the city is called Quay (pronounced Key) Street. The Seafarers Mission is on the first floor of number 114 and you will find us opposite the Captain Cook and Marsden Wharves.         

Transport may be available (eg from Chelsea Sugar Wharf). Please phone +64 (0)21 646 640 (John) or +64 (0)272 387 087 (Philip)
