Private Couples & Marriage Counseling Retreat For 5-Days
Our Special Couple’s Counseling Retreat Will Put Your Marriage Back On Course
Your Love Odyssey couple’s counseling retreat will place both of you in a beautiful natural environment that will be optimal for encouraging you to see things from a fresh perspective and help you save your marriage. The cruise will involve working on your relationship difficulties through expert marriage counseling with Bryce and Helen Kaye who will work together as a team to help you save your marriage. There will also be a lot to enjoy. You will see a variety of interesting vessels on the open water, passing you on their voyages from far-away places. Part of your couples retreat will be spent exploring the quaint historical towns we will be docking at along the way. Some of the bed and breakfast inns you’ll be staying in date back well into the 1800’s. The local restaurants serve fresh seafood and are excellent. Each town has its own colorful history and you will enjoy exploring it together. For more information about each destination, take a virtual tour on its own home page: Ocracoke, New Bern, Beaufort, Cape Lookout.

Weather Safety Policy
Any responsible mariner knows that safety of passengers and vessel is the highest priority. All preferred routes and destinations for this couples counseling retreat will be evaluated for safety by the captain before departure. At his sole discretion, the captain may determine that a route or destination change may be warranted due to projected weather or sea conditions. There may be some days when the captain might even determine that the weather is projected to be too hazardous to leave port. This is the inherent uncertainty when traveling so close to nature.
If a preferred route is revised by the captain, your preference for an alternate route will be given high priority consideration.
