Capt and crew were great. Capt kept searching for the best fishing spots for that day. As a bonus, got to see whales playing behind the boat. Everyone caught fish, what more can you ask for on a fishing trip?

I took my son on a half day trip with Virg's on Friday and it was a great experience. We've done a few fishing trips in San Diego, so we were familiar with the routine and what to expect. I left very pleased with the experience. Reservation/Check-in: The person I spoke to on the phone was very professional, went over... More

First of all I want to say I had a great time. My father in law, after dropping his line down only twice became very seasick and spent the rest of the trip inside the cabin. The deckhand, Freddie, told me not to worry and he would make sure he had some fish to take home with him. I needed... More

Booked a fishing excursion on the Fiesta and had a great time. The check in/registration area is clean. I didn't pay much attention to the cost but noticed everything was posted and the person helping us made sure to allow time for questions. Morro Bay is chilly, even in the summer, and you can bet if you are going out... More

My father liked when Virg's was on the water front. The Princess crew were the best. All my fishing needs handled with no problem.

I have been out on Virg's boats several times. I have always enjoyed the trip. You don't always limit out but you can be sure that the crew will do everything to help you get your fish from water to plastic bag. I limited out and caught a Ling Cod as well. The Ling was 2" short of the length... More

I have now had three terrible experiences at virgs. the staff is rude and uninterested in helping. The first fishing trip i I went on the boat broke down 2 minutes out of the bay and the trip was cancelled. Today i tried again to go out through virgs on a fishing trip. This time they didn't bother to call... More
