As part of a longer family vacation traveling up the California coast, my son and I took a break for a full day deep sea fishing trip with Virg's Landing in Morro Bay July 1st. Had a great time aboard and enjoyed pulling in our limit of fish. The trip was from 6am to 4pm, but they request people check... More

We went out for a fishing trip for our anniversary. I can't say enough good things about the service and friendly crew. We didn't do all of catching this time but not because they didn't try and put us on fish. Breakfast burritos and cheeseburgers on board were tasty. Met some very nice people and just had a really nice... More

Thank you very much. We appreciate the nice review. Come on back later in the summer when the BIG Lingcod come in close to spawn. We do a lot more "catching" then. Have a great day. More

It was my first time going deep sea fishing and I loved it!!! The deck hands were sooooo nice and helpful (Brian)!!! I was very fortunate to have met the owners and they are such sweet kind hearted people! I would definitely go fishing with these people and this company again when I'm visiting California!

We were lucky to have gotten on what seemed to be the flagship of Virg's fleet (Princess) on opening day for our sports fishing trip. We chose a full day trip for the whole experience! After a quick check in at the tackle shop, we boarded early in the morning. Shortly after we hit our first hotspot and began fishing.... More

Glad you had a good time. So did we. Really nice group on the boat. Come back later in the summer because the fishing will be much better and the ocean is calmer. I also recommend getting your MD to prescribe some Scopolamine patches to prevent sea sickness. I use them every time I go out. Thanks again for the... More

We went out on a half day boat at Virg's Landing in Morro Bay, CA. . The Captain and deck hands were very helpful. The boat, Rita G, was booked full but did not seem too crowded. Most people caught their limit but mostly small fish. I think the biggest fish weighed 6.5 pounds which was a red rock fish.... More

Good morning. Thank you for the review. I am sorry your expectations were not met. Unfortunately with fishing, some days the big ones are around, other days not. When you come back, I recommend one of the longer day trips, because the boats have a bit more time to get to areas less frequently fished. Tight lines. Denise More

Enjoyed a 3/4 Day deep sea fishing trip on the Fiesta with Captain Charlie and his two deck hands. They did a great job of taking us to the fish, and assisting us with bringing them in and untangling lines. A great crew and a wonderful time.

I grew up on the central coast, but couldn't ever bring myself to buy an ocean boat. I go out on the sport fishing "party" boat with virg's throughout the year. In recent years I have been around 7-10 times per season. Last season was great, the captains often went straight to the spots and rockfish aplenty. This season has... More
