Visit spectacular East Sooke Park, one of the renowned waterfront hikes on the Island, or venture a little further west to French Beach Provincial Park, China Beach Provincial Park, or trek the new Juan de Fuca Marine Trail to the beautiful suspension bridge.
Further west is the unparalleled Botanical Beach Park with its crashing waves and fascinating tidal pools which are visible at tides less than four feet.
Bicycles are available for rent in Sooke as well, excellent for exploring the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. Exhilarate yourself on a whale watching tour with Sooke Coastal Explorations… or take a guided wilderness tour with Wilderness River Adventures, or Beyond the Edge.
Rush Adventures offers excursions for adventure-seekers, including hiking, diving, and sea kayaking.
As of 2007, the new world class soft adventure is here. Adrena Line Zipline Adventure Tours with 8 ziplines (one is 1000ft) and two suspension bridges, in the magnificent hills of North Sooke.
If Golf is your thing……to Olympic View Golf Course, or the new and spectacular Bear Mountain course, both championship courses are very nearby. For a tamer round, our 9 hole DeMamiel Creek course in Sooke might be the answer.
The folks at Eagle-Eye Wilderness in the Village of Sooke will be happy to set you up with a Salmon Fishing Charter and outfit your every need for the outdoors.
