Now you need to find the man-stealing mermaid and try to break her spell over poor Raymond, the mermaid Marina is near the northern coast of the island (here).
When you find her, ask her about Raymond Striker and you will discover that she does in fact have a spell on him, and will not release him unless someone better comes along.
Breaking the Spell
If you explore the area just south-west of Sabrehaven, you will find the reclusive djinn Ocelus on a mountain (here). Ocelus is in love with Marina, but he is too shy to ask her for a date. He would like you to ask for him.
Now you need to return to Marina and ask her for a date with Ocelus. She will turn him down out of disappointment that he wasn't romantic enough.
Now you need to return to Ocelus with the bad news. He will tell you to get a poem for him, if you didn't buy one already, head to Ab'Dendriel and buy a Love Poem from Elvith.
Once you have the love poem, return to Ocelus, and he will magically grant you the ability to recite the poem as a true elven poet.
Now you need to go recite the poem to Marina and impress her with the djinn's romantic and poetic abilities. She will then give you the ability to ride her sea turtles, allowing you to access the Laguna Islands. you will also get the Achievement Matchmaker for this mission.
Eleonore: My ring was stolen by a parrot, directly from my dressing table near the window. It flew to the nearby mountains and I fear my ring will be lost forever. Whoever returns it to me will be rewarded generously. ...
Eleonore: I guess that evil parrot hid the ring somewhere on a high tree or a rock so that you might need a rake to get it.
Eleonore: Oh, my beloved ring! Have you found it and want to return it to me? Player: Yes
Eleonore: Oh, thank you so much! Take this gold as a reward. ... which reminds me, I would need some help in another matter. It is only a small errand. Are you interested?
Eleonore: Thank you! It is not a difficult matter but a rather urgent one. I need to send some money to a person in town. Would you be willing to run this small errand for me? Player: Yes
Eleonore: I was hoping that you'd agree. Please deliver these 200 gold pieces to the herbalist Charlotta in the south-western part of the town. If you return from this errand, I will grant you 5 gold pieces as reward for your efforts.
Charlotta: Oh, so you brought some gold from Eleonore to me? Player: yes
Charlotta: Hmm, it seems that Eleonore does trust you. Perhaps she is even right. However. Since we need some help right now I guess we can't be too picky. Return to Eleonore and tell her the secret password: 'peg leg'. She will tell you more about her problem.
Eleonore: Be greeted. What brings you here? Player: Errand
Eleonore: Great, thank you! As promised, here are your 5 gold pieces. Is there ... anything left that you might want to discuss with me?

Captain Waverider: Ohhhh. So... <lowers his voice> 'you know who' sent you so I sail you to 'you know where'. <wink> <wink> It will cost 50 gold to cover my expenses. Is it that what you wish? Player: Yes
Raymond Striker: Eleonore ... Yes, I remember her... vaguely. She is a pretty girl ... but still only a girl and now I am in love with a beautiful and passionate woman. A true mermaid even. Player: Mermaid
Raymond Striker: The mermaid is the most beautiful creature I have ever met. She is so wonderful. It was some kind of magic as we first met. A look in her eyes and I suddenly knew there would be never again another woman in my life but her.
Breaking the Spell
Ocelus: I heard the birds sing about her beauty. But how could a human rival the enchanting beauty of a mermaid? Player: Mermaid
Ocelus: Oh yes, I noticed that lovely mermaid. From afar of course. I would not dare to step into the eyes of such a lovely creature. ...
Ocelus: ... I guess I am quite shy. Oh my, if I were not blue, I would turn red now. If there would be someone to arrange a date with her. Player: Date
Ocelus: Will you ask the mermaid Marina if she would date me? Player: Yes
Ocelus: Thank you. How ironic, a human granting a djinn a wish.
Marina: Is that the best you can do? A true Djinn would have done something more poetic.
Ocelus: Oh my. Its not easy to impress a mermaid I guess. Please get me a love poem. I think elves are the greatest poets so their city seems like a good place to look for one. Player: Marina
Ocelus: Oh my. Its not easy to impress a mermaid I guess. Please get me a love poem. I think elves are the greatest poets so their city seems like a good place to look for one. Player: Love Poem
Ocelus: Did you get a love poem from Ab'Dendriel? Player: Yes
Ocelus: Excellent. Here, with this little spell I enable you to recite the poem like a true elven poet. Now go and ask her for a date again.
Marina: This lovely, exotic Djinn is a true poet. And he is asking me for a date? Excellent. Now I can finaly dump this human pirate. He was growing to be boring more and more with each day ...
Marina: As a little reward for your efforts I allow you to ride my sea turtles. Just look around at the shores and you will find them.
Player: Ray Striker
Eleonore: <blushes> Oh, he is so wonderful. A very special man with a special place in my heart. Player: Mermaid
Eleonore: I can't thank you enough for freeing my beloved Ray from that evil spell. I am still shocked that a mermaid could steal his love that easily.
