A turn-key experience
How Was Your Experience on the Mariner III?: Excellent

I recently chartered the Mariner III for a client outing, and every aspect of the experience was handled perfectly.

We had a lot of requests going into the event, as we needed to heavily brand the boat, and curate the experience to recreate a jaunt on the French Riviera. At every turn, Francis and the rest of the staff were able to accommodate our requests, and offer even more impactful solutions.

Our clients had a wonderful time, and I very much hope to have an opportunity to work with Mariner III again.

Amazing night!!!
How Was Your Experience on the Mariner III?: Beyond 5 starship

I had a surprise birthday/wedding on this boat.

The food was amazing, the service impeccable, the boat captivated my guest, and the experience working with Francis and his crew was a pleasure.

We are eagerly planning our next family reunion aboard the mariner.

The food rivals some 5 star restaurants, and that is hard to find on a boat. The chef takes pride in his food and it shows!

Thanks again for an amazing night!

Looking forward to the next😎

ACF donation charter - Raised $25k for cancer research
How Was Your Experience on the Mariner III?: Remarkable

Over the top and out of this world dinner cruise experience. Beautiful yacht, superb hospitality and amazing food. Coming from a guy, based out of New Orleans, with a long history in the food business (I do not say this lightly), the food and southern hospitality on this cruise, did not disappoint. I cannot thank the Kennedy family enough for their generous support of the Al Copeland Foundation (ACF). I decided to join Eric Hernandez (auction winner) on his dinner cruise and not only did they do a great job with the execution of this cruise, it was very heartwarming to think they would be so unselfish, to offer this remarkable experience to our foundation. I would highly recommend the Mariner III for any event for any reason. I would like to extend my personal thanks to Capt. Sean Kennedy, Chef Francis Pavlov and server Jamie Gibbons.

Warm regards,

Al Copeland, Jr.

President of the Al Copeland Foundation

Great evening (as always)
How Was Your Experience on the Mariner III?: Excellent

We have chartered Mariner III four teams now; each one has been a fantastic experience. Captain Sean and the entire crew could not be more friendly and professional, and the vessel is wonderfully maintained. She is a true classic! I can't recommend an evening onboard highly enough.

Fabulous 35th company anniversary
How Was Your Experience on the Mariner III?: wonderful

Thank you, Francis, Sean and the entire crew of the Mariner III for making our company anniversary party a very special event. You made us all feel as though we were old friends, and treated us accordingly. The pace, the actual cruise, the food, even the music (I was asked what kind of music I would like) was all perfect. Your stunning vintage classy ship and your warmth made for a fabulous celebration. We all thoroughly loved it.

We LOVE the Mariner - Great Community Partners
How Was Your Experience on the Mariner III?: Excellent

It is with great pleasure to write a review in regards to the Mariner and her Captain and crew. They are all exceptional.

The Mariner III, itself is a treasure. She is in beautiful condition for being built in 1926. From the moment you walk up to your gangway, you see the majesty of style and years. Once onboard, you feel a bit like walking back in time with all the comforts of today. Sometimes, I feel like I can feel those who were on her generations ago in the most delightful ways.

She is roomy and great for a party or an intimate gathering or a large group.

Freedom Waters Foundation (501 C3) has used her for all, as well as many charity outings for children with disabilities, life threatening illnesses and our veterans and it has been in enjoyed by all.

And the Mariner III's Captain and Crew are always warm, inviting, professional and superb at delivering to the client's needs from my experience.

Kudos Mariner on all that you do and I am forever thankful for you being incredible community service partners and ongoing supporters of the Freedom Waters Foundation.

Well done. Thank you.
