The Woman of Fisherman's Wharf

Posted by Starla Gunter on

She loves early mornings with a fishing rod in hand, breaking stereotypes, and calling Fisherman’s Wharf home. 
Captain Virginia Salvador of Gatecrasher Fishing in the San Francisco Bay Area is known as the co-captain of her vessel.

Taking her place on a pier that has existed since the 1850s, Virginia is only the second female to operate her business on the front row of the historic and popular Fisherman’s Wharf.

“Let the rod do the talking” was her response when we asked what it looks like for her to be a female working in a male-dominated industry. She added that by working hard, she’s gained the respect of her peers.

Working in a commercial industry, Virginia isn’t immune to risk. Groove Rings® are the first rings that have ever not pruned Virginia’s finger after a long day out on the water. She loves that they keep her fingers safe, so she can stay focused on the task (or the fish) at hand.

Virginia loves being a part of history and is making her mark, while getting to do what she’s most passionate about. Journey with us to the heart of the Bay Area and check out our video sneak peek into a day in the life of the woman of Fisherman’s Wharf.
