Seafarers – How to get Help

The Mission to Seafarers can help you to be happy at sea even when you are not visiting one of our Centres in port. Here are some online ideas for you if or when you are blessed enough to be able to connect to WiFi.

On your way to Sydney? Use our What'sApp link to connect with one of our Chaplains

Download the new FREE Happy At Sea App!

The Mission to Seafarers network has created a new App especially designed for seafarers – and it’s free! 

Packed with resources, the App allows seafarers to access wellbeing resources, make a shopping request, ask for a chaplain visit, check into a port or we’ll help you contact a loved one. It will download the latest news in the background, so you can stay up to date even without an internet connection.

Visit wherever you get your favourites Apps!

Have Your Say to Improve Life at Sea

The Seafarers Happiness Index exists to provide all men and women working at sea with a chance to share how they feel and to talk about the good and bad about life at sea today. Share your views and let the industry know what works and what needs to be changed. You can do this at the website or via the Happiness at Sea App.
