Catching (and eating) succulent crustaceans is fun a pastime on the West Coast.
As locals, we’ve got the inside track on favourite Sooke crab fishing spots for delicious Dungeness and red rock crab. The easiest way to fish for crab is off the Sooke Rotary Pier and Boardwalk. Crustaceans swarm bait-traps like hungry crows.
All you need is a crab fishing license, and an appetite for fun.
Mystic Beach is one of the area’s most scenic beaches, located along the shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
And it’s a great weekend (or day) getaway, especially if you live in the Sooke Region.
The area features a small waterfall that cascades from the sheer cliff above the beach area and offers incredible views of the Olympic mountains across the strait.
Mystic Beach is accessed through China Beach Provincial Park, west of Jordan River.
