Virgi's Landing provided us with a first class sports fishing trip. The staff was very knowledgeable and very helpful! Fish limits and sizes were explained. They offered cleaning services at the end of the trip. There is breakfast and lunch available for purchase. My husband and I had a wonderful time! We highly recommend the experience.

Wife and I took a half-day fishing trip with Virg's Landing. The captain tried to always keep us over the fish. There were several really nice fish caught on the trip. The deck hands were very helpful and patient. This us something I would definitely do again!

We've done fishing trips like this before and they are always fun. Although today we didn't catch as many as we usually do and all the big ones got away it's still a fun thing to do. A few tips: If you need a license they only accept cash. Day licenses are $ 15 and annual $ 47.50. If you... More

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.

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
