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

Scheduled for the 3/4 day fishing trip as a "Father's Day" gift from our wives. Arrived one hour early, 06:00 hours, as instructed but were told the trip was cancelled. They accomodated by allowing us on the full day boat scheduled to leave port at 06:00. Bruce drove us down in his own vehicle, super nice gentleman. At 07:15 Sunday... More

I am terribly sorry you were not happy with your Virgs experience. Good customer service is very important to us. If we have to cancel a trip, the phone calls are made the day before around 3pm. That is our policy. Unfortunately it seems that you did not receive your cellphone message until the next day and that was beyond... More

My son and I took my husband's ashes out to sea on one of this establishments ships. The Captain and the deck hands were so sweet. They were so accommodating and actually had so much class in the way they handled the entire situation. It made a sad day into a pleasant one.

The skipper, and deckhands are very helpful, and made our day of deep-sea fishing quite enjoyable. We ended up with our limits of fish, and had a great time.
