For me I'd say it depends on why their on the water in the first place. My thought is that maybe mermaids "domesticated" sea creatures and one of those was the humpback whale:And that's why mermaids always love to sing and play musical instruments:But then whalers came in and killed large numbers of the whales. So to get revenge, mermaids sing their versions of the whale's songs to lure sailors to their deaths. So basically I would save a sailor who was just going through the ocean but I would lure those who would seek to exploit it to their deaths.
