The International Seamen’s Center (ISC) is a interdenominational, non-profit organization with the mission of serving the temporal and spiritual needs of the thousands of seamen who visit the Port of Wilmington, NC each year.
The Center operates a fleet of two passenger vans offering shuttle services to and from major local retail stores and shopping centers, including Independence Mall. Our volunteer drivers also provide access to doctors, dentists, and other service sources while seafarers are visiting the Port City.
Would you like to become a world missionary without leaving home? Local Wilmington area volunteers and supporters help seamen from over 40 different countries experience a “Home away from Home” atmosphere and safe harbor during their stay in the Port City.
The International Seamen’s Center (ISC) is located within the 300-acre State Ports Authority terminal in the Port of Wilmington NC. It was established in February, 1968 and is 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. The Center is entirely funded by voluntary, tax deductible donations from individuals, churches, and corporations in our community.
