Sooke, BC, Canada
Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

A small waterfront community, Sooke, B.C. follows the shoreline of the Strait of Juan de Fuca rolling around Sooke Basin and Becher Bay quietly and beautifully. The timeless ocean waves lap up against the large rock boulders spotting guard along the jagged coastline populated with families of leaning Arbutus trees shedding bark into the wind.

Sooke Vancouver Island CoastlineViews, looking out from Sooke, are filled with boats, yachts, kayakers and fishing trawlers passing through the strait and busy, coming and going, from the community harbour. Marine birds fly high above watching...
waiting for food. Nothing is still.

Sightseeing never ends when exploring the Village of Sooke, BC or when walking the coastline. Hence, it is always a good idea to have a camera or binoculars handy.
