Whitni Bast Walker August 29, 2019
Absolutely recommend 100 Proof Charters. The entire crew is very responsive and extremely knowledgeable. Hands down the greatest experience I've ever had. These people are ones I'd call friends for a life time. It's not about the money which was worth every penny but about the experience and friendships built with new people. Words honestly can't describe how amazing our 12 hour trip was. We are currently planning a 3 day trip it was that great. Thanks to Rachel, Allen, and Robert.
Jeremy Wubben August 15, 2019
Went out with Capt Ben in the last part of snapper season. Capt and crew were awesome. Had a great time and caught some nice snapper. Look forward to going out on the 100 Proof again soon.
Scott Meeks July 31, 2019
Had a great trip with the guys, highly recommended booking them if you’re wanting to get in to good fish
Pat Selsor July 29, 2019
We fished with 100 Proof July 24th, we had 6 children & 5 adults it was probably the best charter we have been on. With that many people fishing together it gets hectic really fast. There were times we had 6 fish at a time & this crew did not miss a beat & kept things running smoothly. The action was non stop the entire time we fished. Captain &. Crew were all great with kids & every one limited out on red Snapper plus several nice grouper. I highly recommend this charter, I will definitely be fishing with them again!
Damon Peeler July 28, 2019
Captains and crew were great! There were seven of us and they made sure we were all taken care of. Fishing was excellent. Even caught a shark! Best day we have had. Would recommend this Charter to anyone!!!!!
Tawna Frailley Wright July 19, 2019
The crew and Captain are always top notch.
They go out of their way to make sure you are catching fish and having a good time. I would recommend this boat any day of the week!! we have been fishing with them since they started and have never been disappointed!! Some of Destins finest people!! You can't go wrong with the 100 Proof and Captain Allen. and Captain/ Mate Ben. Book your trip today!!
Greg Latsha July 2, 2019
these guys are very professional they catch fish they treat you well they treat you like family so if you're looking to book a charter you can't go wrong booking on this boat. they have cold AC plenty of room clean bathrooms. bring your drinks in your A Game & fish on!
Johnny Smoke June 28, 2019
Robert, Ben, and Reese took great care of the family while Captain Allen put us on the fish. Our group ranged from ages 15 to 50 and the crew on the deck made sure everyone had a great time. We recommend 100 Proof to anyone looking for a great Charter Experience.
James Figurell June 28, 2019
It's been a while but they put us on the fish. You don't forget a day like that. Planning another trip soon. Great captain and mate. Great numbers. Worth every penny!
Jeff Lee June 26, 2019
My friends and I book a charter and fish for snapper every year, this was by far the best experience we’ve had. The captain put us on the fish and the crew was top notch. EXCELLENT charter.
Joey Oliver June 18, 2019
Making sure you’re on top of the big catch!
Jo Ann Golden June 13, 2019
We all had a blast on the 100 Proof! Robert was an amazing help and worked his butt off to make sure we all had a blast! Will definitely be back on board in the future and highly recommend!
Nicholas Lee Hasten June 5, 2019

You WILL catch what you came for!!!
Miriam Krein January 9, 2019

Jay Hansli November 1, 2018
Been fishing for 25 years. I can assure you this Captain knows his business!!
Thanks Captain Allen. Robert and Ben are great deck hands. Probably the best I've ever fished with. Thanks Guys. I'll be back soon!!!
Grady Adams October 29, 2018
We had an excellent time on 100 proof!! Very nice boat and team! Captain Allen put us right on top of the fish all day and Robert was Johnny-on-the-spot on the deck! Deckhands don’t get much better than Robert! He was on the ball all day long handling the equipment, bait and helping us less-experiences ladies. We will be using them again in the future and I highly recommend them
Kristen Blankenship October 20, 2018
Captain Ben and Robert were awesome. Been on many fishing trips these guys are by far the best and most professional! If your in Destin swing by and use them
Spencer Forsythe August 26, 2018
These guys know how to get it done. Highly recommend Capt. Ben and Robert know how to put a great trip together. if you are anywhere close to the Destin area and looking for a fishing trip you wont go wrong here.
Brandon Jarrell August 26, 2018
100 proof is the only was to go! Thanks Ben and Robert for an amazing experience!
Justin Matthew Powell August 26, 2018
When shopping for a charter to go fishing with the kids I had to look for the best chance of getting them on fish as fast possible, with that said these guys know their stuff and had us on fish in no time. Red Snapper limit within minutes and then we were off to the next spot to try all other varieties of fishing. The highlight of the trip was the kids smile and astonishment when seeing how big the fish were. One more thing..... when we hit our limit we didn’t stop and turn around we actually went shark fishing with great success. You get what you pay for so if you looking call these guys first. Thank you Ben and Robert. We will come again.
Keith Kilpatrick July 8, 2018
If you are in Destin & want to fish I highly recommend 100 Proof. I had a great trip on the 100 Proof with Ben & Robert. They both did an awesome job of putting me on sharks (many shots at fish). Managed to turn in a Grand Slam (Blacktip, Bull & Tiger). This is the second trip I've had with Ben. And thanks to Rachel for setting up my Shark Gand Slam request. I can't wait to set up another trip with y'all.
Brent Evans July 6, 2018
The best fishing boat around! Robert is the most friendly guy and helped us every step of the way. Caught a ton of fish and had a blast. I would recommend them to anyone.
Michael Jackee Elmore June 11, 2018

Jacob Chitty August 11, 2017
If you want to have a great fishing trip, go 100 proof. The crew was great with our kids! They can't wait to go deep sea fishing next year. I will need to add scopolamine to my Dramamine.

Lori Meyers Lepine April 11, 2017
Fantastic day of fishing with our dad and his grandsons! 3 generations and Captain Ben and Robert made sure we all got on fish! Hooking amberjack, and an occasional shark, was the highlight of our vacation and made memories for a lifetime! Thank you Capt. Ben and Robert!

We had the time of our life!! We told Ben and Wayne we wanted to do some shark fishing, they took us to do some shark fishing!! Lol They were great with our kids, let us catch some amberjack and red snapper too, taught us about the ramora and let the kids play with their sweet puppy! Seriously, we could not have had a better time!! These guys are great!! We WILL be seeing them again and do highly recommend them!!
Pereff Crew May 4, 2016

Ronda McCollum July 3, 2015
Best thing we've done in Destin by far!!!! Went out today with Cpt. Judah on Stelluna & loved every minute of it! 4 sharks, 1 king mackerel & 2 bonita made for an awesome time! Cpt. Judah was very knowledgable & easy going. We plan to come back & will definitely use him again, as well as send all friends & family his way! Thanks again for a memorable day!!
Ashley Smith Vance June 25, 2015
We had a great time with Ben & Jason. We ended up taking two trips while we were there!
Kaylee Clifton June 8, 2015
Greatest saltwater guides ever . 2 huge sharks one 8ft and one 15 ft . We fought the sharks the whole trip or would have caught more . Great guys to fish with. Had a blast. Still sore ! Lost my man card today .... But that tiger shark earned it! Thanks so much Ben and chandler !
Josh Jesse July 24, 2014
We had an amazing time with Cpt. Ben. It was a last minute decision to take a private charter right after getting off of a party boat charter. We had such an amazing time when we got off we rebooked another trip for the following day. He knew exactly where to go for the specific fish we wanted to catch. We're going back to GA with 3 coolers FULL! Thanks a million Cpt Ben! Until next trip!
Jamie Cardinal Contreras June 21, 2014
Captain Steve Brown knows where the fish are! We had a great time landing big amberjacks and some side action trying for grouper. First Mate Rodney was great with the gear as well. Will definitely be back and highly recommend for awesome fishing!
