United Seafarers' Mission

Tauranga Seafarers' Centre

Port of Tauranga, New Zealand


The United Seafarers' Mission is heavily dependent on it's committed team of unpaid volunteers in order to carry out it's mission in caring for the welfare of visiting seafarers from all over the world. We do not use the term 'committed' lightly, as we have some who have been regularly involved for well over 20 years.

We are always needing new folk to become involved as volunteers. Most of our folk carry out one or two shifts per week, although some do even more because they find the involvement so satisfying and enjoyable.

At present, we operate three shifts each day ...

  • 11.00am - 2:00pm
  • 2:pm - 5:30pm
  • 5:30pm - 9pm
