Welcome

Welcome to the vast wild coast with an amazing array of things to tempt and taunt. The broad area stretching from Becher Bay to Port Renfrew are a traveler’s paradise offering all of the basics and some luxury as well.

The cultural diversity and wealth of creative spirit is what makes the region Wild by Nature. The incredible beauty of the natural wild spaces, the animals and the ocean make this a place one does not soon forget. 

Every part of the region has something to tempt the adventurous person in all of us. Whether it is hiking along the many trails and shorelines or discovering the talented artists, Sooke and region is a untrampled and unspoiled community of interesting and talented characters.

Each year Highway 14 and the Pacific Marine Circle Route take visitors through some of the most stunning scenic areas, many as yet undiscovered by the throngs. From camping in our incredible Provincial and National Parks to dining in our world-famous restaurants, the area is a breath of fresh air for those who value small town charm and a sense of community.

Sooke offers the traveler everything they need to make their experience one to cherish for years to come. Whale watching, fishing, hiking, swimming, cycling, kayaking and beachcombing are all here, as are; artisans, country markets, interesting retail shops and friendly people. 

Stay awhile and get a feel for the West Coast as it was and will be.

We are Wild by Nature in any season and we welcome you.
