Maritime Day












33rd National Maritime Day

Friday, May 20th 2022

The Port Arthur International Seafarers’ Center

is proud to host the

National Maritime Day Observance


Seafarer Welfare is More Than Driving to WalMart!


In 1998 the crew of the M/V Delta Pride was abandoned outside the Port of Brownsville, through the efforts of the Brownsville Pilots and the Sabine-Nevhes Maritime Industry, the Port Arthur International Seafarers’ Center was able to assist the crew. In 2018, our seafarer center was able to assist a US Merchant Mariner, who was abandoned by his foreign flag ship operator. Come and hear about the great stories…and more.
