Things to Do
Bald Eagles in a tree
Sooke is a grade-A destination for outdoor adventure on Canada's southwestern coast.
Exploring forested hiking trails, chartering a boat for sports fishing, flying along a zipline, biking the Galloping Goose trail and walking for miles along wave-pounded beaches are favourite pastimes here. Go crabbing off the pier, visit a honey farm or shop for specialty food at the summer Saturday market.
Surfing and bird watching devotees are also well served, and a set of fascinating guided tours (kayaking, whale watching, seaweed collecting and mead-making included) puts one in the hands of knowledgeable local experts. Or simply relax at local spas or check out an art gallery or studio.
