Creating poly line features from time stamp point data

Hi, 

 

I am currently working with vessel tracking data from AIS and I have a years worth of vessel location data in a table format (now converted to point features in Pro). 

We essentially need to create individual trips as poly lines from this data - a new trip in the data starts when the gap in  the timestamp is greater than 20 min. 

 

Is it possible to use a tool in ArcGIS which would go through all the point data timestamps and create line features from these? Additionally, a new line feature would be created each time the timestamp difference between point features is greater than 20 min.

 

Attached is how the timestamp vessel location data looks now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you. 

Darko
