They were set up as an independent (non-league) team in 1930. They initially played exhibition games against teams form the northeastern United States and eastern Canada, The Sea Gulls were a big draw in Atlantic City, which was a big tourist destination with gambling casinos and big-time entertainment.
The Sea Gulls joined in the Tri States Hockey League when it was formed in 1932 and won the league championship. The league became the Eastern Hockey League the following season. The Sea Gulls won the league championship four times - in 1937, 1938, 1940, and 1951. They took a hiatus from 1942-47 and the entire league took a hiatus in 1948-49.
The team folded in 1951, a victim of the fall of Atlantic City's tourism as anything else.
