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

Did their whale trip. Crew constantly smoked. If you wanted a break from the weather, you had to go inside, where it smelled like a dirty old ash tray.

My husband always goes out on a rock cod trip every October when we are in the Cambria/Morro Bay area. Good prices, good crew and he always comes in with a good catch.

Nice crew and staff at the office. Office has moved up one block from the waterfront on Market St. just off Beech St to the North. We all just had a bad day fishing on Wednesday Sept. 19, wind picked up and swells were quite big!! Overall, always nice to get out to do some fishing though!!

Wonderful crew that was truly helpful and fun. From the moment we arrived at the offices at check-in, to boarding, fishing, and departing the crew was fun, helpful, and worked their tails off for all the passengers. They were amazingly attentive; as anytime I needed assistance, they seemed to magically appear to help without me even asking once. The prices... More
