Welcome to La Rochelle – La Pallice Seamen’s Club

We are a non-profit organization that was started by volunteers in 1993.

Our objectives are to welcome, provide orientation and practical help to the seamen who transit through in what is for them a foreign port.

Marin’Escale will be at your disposition for any help during the stopover of your vessel in La Rochelle’s harbor.

We have been around for about 25 years and are pleased to provide a place for the many seafarers who stay in the harbor every day. A place for relaxing and spending leisure time away from your vessel.

The efforts of many volunteers and employees make possible to be open 7 days a week.

Don’t hesitate to visit us and come to relax, share a drink or have a chat with the volunteers and employees of our club.

You can enjoy playing pool, foosball, ping-pong or even karaoke on site. A basketball court is at your disposal. We also have a small shop where you can find all the commodities, gifts and a few necessities. Besides, you can help yourself to a collection of free books, clothes and accessories (visit our products page).

Bikes are available for a small fee all day long and you can go to visit the city center. We hope that your stay in La Rochelle will be a pleasant one and that you can find all that you need on shore.

Do not hesitate to contact us by email, Facebook, phone or VHF channel 14 for more information.
