Welcome to Commander, Fleet Activities Chinhae

Congratulations on your orders to Chinhae, South Korea. Or, if you are considering orders to Chinhae, thank you for stopping by to learn more about the incredible opportunities that await you here at the only Navy Base in Mainland Asia.  Chinhae is part of the Changwon tri-city area with a population of about 1.2 million.  Despite the bustling city around us, our base is a like small community within itself.  We have our own Commissary, AAFES Exchange, bowling alley, restaurants, gym, 3D Movie Theater, game rooms, etc.  The Housing is consistently ranked high for comfort and customer service and there are many playgrounds in the family housing neighborhoods and parks in the community.  Single Sailors and geo-bachelors can take advantage of MWR’s Liberty Program which offers free trips, bowling, movie nights, parties, and more.

As the Command Senior Chief, please allow me to assist you in ensuring a successful transition to your new home in South Korea.  If you’ve received your orders, it is our focus to ensure your sponsor is assigned and contacts you as soon as possible.  If you have not been contacted by your sponsor email me at  It is my conviction to make certain that you and your family are well taken care of. Proactive engagement on your part with your sponsor and our Ombudsman ( can solve many issues and concerns before you arrive onboard, thus paving the way for a smooth transition.

In addition, take a few minutes to peruse this website, particularly our relocation section, for helpful information about moving here.  Also, get excited by checking out our Facebook page (CFAC) where you can find information about upcoming events and activities.

Again, congratulations on your orders to Chinhae.  I know you will enjoy your tour here. Welcome aboard Shipmates!
