10/10 - GOOD
The Bluewater 100 is the flagship, designed to stop the truly heavyweight pelagics the world has to offer.  With the strength and lift to handle the largest pelagics and successfully lands fast moving soft bodied species with a 100 foot float line and bungee. Flat design allows for skimming the surface rather than digging, which means you won’t even notice it is behind you when diving in currents.  The most advantageous aspect of this float is that it allows for the taking of any and all pelagic species and has a reduced initial impact on the fish, in comparison to…

The Good

The market leader in Bluewater Float design and development.  Pound for Pound, the 100 is an absolute BEAST! With a Lifetime Warranty on materials and workmanship at the discretion of Gannet Dive Company and a 50% buyback option, the investment is well protected for the life of the float.  Easily can handle fish across the entire pelagic spectrum when combined with a 100 foot float line and bungee. There are 3 float capacity options available based on the specific hunting of the diver.

The Bad

The size and rigidity of the float can be a little tricky to pack if you are trying to travel with as little luggage as possible.  At a price of $398.99 (at the time of this review), this premium float is the most expensive in relation to competitors.

The Bottom Line

A robust float that can handle anything the ocean has to offer.  This is a great example of when innovation and design produce a product that can travel the world landing powerful fish and also be perfect for local waters.  Based on the high level of success the Bluewater 100 has had world wide on massive blue water and reef species, this float is an excellent buy.


A true 2 ATM float at 29 PSI, providing 100 pounds of lift at 60 feet underwater.  The floats internal architecture keeps the sides flat at pressure to negate roll both in the water and on the boat deck.  3 hand holds provide ease of use and attachment points. Comes with a Schrader Valve adaptor, Pressure Gauge and Safety Whistle.  An additional Flag Kit adaptor is available as a separate purchase for greater visibility.
