Crew Profile

Cameron McDowell, Captain and Owner (on the left in the picture)

Cameron was drawn to the sea as a young boy and has enjoyed traveling and exploring the oceans of the world ever since. He started working weekends and summers on boats as a youth and qualified for his first Captains license at the ripe old age of 18. A full-time Captain for the past 22 years, he has had the privilege of sharing his experiences fishing and cruising, from the Mediterranean Sea to Alaska with a diverse group of guests. Having traveled to an array of remote locations, he believes that safety and self sufficiency are the most important things aboard a vessel. He is USCG certified master of vessels to 200 tons and is trained in first aid, CPR, and AED operation.

Cameron writes, "There’s no place else in world like Alaska, with her towering landscapes, colorful waters, glaciers and diversity of wildlife. Epic is the only word to describe it! I love sharing my knowledge and passion for all things Alaska with guests aboard WILD DAWN."

Cameron is joined by 3 additional crew: Chef, Stewardess, and Mate/Engineer.

With her 25 foot beam (width), unusually large for a vessel of her length, WILD DAWN is a perfect vessel for Alaska. She provides a super stable platform and offers the interior volume of a much larger yacht.

With both a large salon and covered aft deck that spans the full width of the yacht, Wild Dawn’s common spaces are inviting and comfortable. The aft deck has plenty of seating to relax and a large dining table for outdoor meals with amazing views!

WILD DAWN had a comprehensive refit from 2008-2012 with:

  • New Caterpillar C18 engines for quieter operation and reduced fuel burn for a much lower impact on the environment.
  • New 65 KW Northern Lights generators.
  • All new electrical distribution panels.
  • Complete refit of the guest staterooms and bathrooms.

She was custom built in California by Poole Boat Company to commercial vessel standards with welded aluminum. Poole Boat Company is also known for building the bulk of the Southern California long range tuna charter fleet with vessels that regularly travel over 1,000 miles into Mexican waters.

There is a full compliment of safety gear onboard:

  • Survival Suits for all guests
  • Life jackets for all guests
  • 2 fixed mount VHF radios, 6 handheld VHF radios including 2 that are dedicated for emergency for emergency use only.
  • Cat 1 EPIRB
  • Two 6-person life rafts
  • Iridium Satellite phone (for emergencies only)
  • Automatic fire extinguishers in the engine room, handheld fire extinguishers in every room
