Sooke Travel Guide
Welcome to Sooke!
Lodged between untamed rainforest and the Pacific Ocean, Sooke, British Columbia, is marked by its rugged scenery and mild climate. The dramatic scenery of ocean beaches like China Beach and Gordon's Beach, and waterfront trails, such as the West Coast Trail and the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, inspire hikers and sea kayakers from all over the globe to visit. Fishing tours are also popular, as Sooke is known for some of the best year-round salmon fishing on Vancouver Island, and the occasional halibut comes in at a few hundred pounds. Boat tours between April and October offer a glimpse of the area's abundant marine wildlife, including killer whales, porpoises and sea lions. For a more land-bound day's activities, there are a number of nearby golf courses. In town, Sooke extends a welcoming hand to visitors with its grand selection of bed and breakfasts, art studios and shops. This is perfect for those who want a quiet retreat, yet still wish to be near Victoria, a scenic 40-minute drive away.
