Captain Dawn Pollard Mergelsberg, born and raised in Miami Beach, has always had a penchant for the sea.  


As a little girl she was always out on the water and by the time she was a teenager, she knew where she wanted to be. She is a person who has always had a place in her heart for other people, especially those who have had recent significant events in their life.  Her care, feeling and treatment for other people is immeasurable.

Captain Dawn has been a licensed Coast Guard 100 ton captain for over 30 years.  She has run her own Deep Sea Charter Fishing business, Head and Tail Charters Inc. with the 55 foot F/V Helen C for a number of years.  It wasn’t always about fishing - it was always about the people. Whether it was a fishing charter, burial at sea or an evening dinner cruise - customer satisfaction was her biggest gratification.
