About Marine Café Blog

Launched in August of 2009, Marine Café Blog is known for providing bold, and sometimes irreverent, views on the maritime world. It tackles issues that affect seafarers and other maritime workers but also highlights marine art and culture. Behind this choice of focus is the belief that the greatest challenge faced by shipping in the 21st century is how to reclaim its humanity.
