Captain Bill Jr. was employed as Senior Captain of the Spirit Cruise Line and currently is a Senior Captain for New York Waterway, a high speed-jet powered commuter ferry between New Jersey and Manhattan.

Mates - Our Mates are experienced in inshore and offshore fishing. They work hard to ensure your day aboard the HI HOOK II is a memorable and enjoyable experience. They are responsible for rigging baits, gaffing fish and cleaning and packaging your catch. Our Mates will also coach less experienced fishermen. A 20% tip for the Mate is customary.
