Hull's Sea Lover

Welcome to Hull’s Sea Lover, one of Ponce Inlet’s premier fishing boats for the past decades! Captain Bill and his crew focus on making sure you have the most enjoyable trip on the open ocean.

This is a charter boat that specializes in offshore fishing, targeting all the reef species such as Grouper, Snapper, Black Sea Bass, Trigger Fish, and Amberjack. With them, you can also target many trolling species from Mahi Mahi and Wahoo to Sailfish.

You’ll be fishing on a 40’ custom-built offshore boat. This sportfishing vessel has lots of space for everyone to fish in comfort and accommodates up to 6 guests. She’s powered by a mighty 800 HP John Deere engine and has the latest navigational electronics. The boat also features a private toilet, an air-conditioned cabin, a fighting chair, and a live bait tank.

Not only do you get to keep the catch, but the captain will also clean it for you free of charge. Bring a cooler if you’re saving your fish for later or pick a restaurant where they can immediately prepare it for you.

Capt. Bill covers almost everything you’ll need for your day out - fishing licenses for everyone on board, fishing equipment, and live bait. You’ll need to prepare food, drinks, and sun protection.

Hull’s Sea Lover looks forward to seeing you on their boat!
