Welcome, seafarers arriving at SeaPort Manatee or those working at the port! Acknowledging life's challenges at sea, we extend an invitation to Anchor House—a sanctuary for relaxation. Discover our on-site facilities, including pool tables, a movie-equipped TV, comfy couches, and a concessions area serving refreshing beverages and delicious burgers. At Anchor House, consider yourself not just a guest but a cherished member of our maritime family.

In adherence to the latest port regulations, seafarers are now restricted from walking on port grounds. If you wish to visit Anchor House, simply give us a call, and we'll arrange to pick you up, ensuring a smooth journey to the center and back to your vessel.

In need of supplies? Please take advantage of our convenient shuttle services to Walmart and nearby stores. Contact the Anchor House Center via WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, or email (details below) for shuttle schedules and availability. Planning to order from Amazon? Contact us in advance, and we'll collaborate to meet your needs.

Feel free to connect with us! We also conduct ship visits and would be delighted to arrange a time to visit you.

Embrace spiritual support through our shipboard worship services. If you wish to host a worship session, contact us to schedule a date and time. Our mission is inspired by the love of Jesus Christ, and while we are eager to address any questions you may have about Jesus, please know that we are here to serve you, regardless of your religious affiliations or beliefs.
Find solace and rejuvenation at Anchor House, your home at SeaPort Manatee.
