The Seamen’s Club in La Rochelle calls itself Marin’ Escale. We are a non-profit organisation that was started by a groupe of volonteers en 1993. Our goal is to welcome the seamen who transit through the harbor of La Rochelle during the loading and unloading of their vessels. The efforts of many volonteers and employees make it possible to be open 7 days a week. We hope that your stay in La Rochelle will be pleasant and that you’ll find all that you need on shore. Here, you can relax, share a drink or have a chat with the volonteers or the employees who work at the Seamen’s Club. With the free WIFI, you can also communicate with friends and family. You can also play ping pong, pool, flipper or Karaoke if you like to sing. A basketball court is also at your disposal. We also have a small shop where you can find gifts and a few necessities. You can also help yourself to a collection of books and free clothes. Bikes are availble for a small fee and visits can be organized to see the center of town.
