Where is Sooke?

Sooke is located on the south west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, 50km from the provincial capital city of Victoria.

The Sooke region encompasses the District of Sooke and East Sooke, two communities joined around the sheltered Sooke Harbour and Basin, as well as the outlaying areas of Otter Point and Shirley further west.

What's so special about it?

On the edge of temperate rainforest, Sooke enjoys a year-round mild climate and closeness to nature, making it ideal for all season outdoor recreation.

Summers are typically warm and dry. Winters also are also mild with a good amount of rainfall and rare snowfall. Our pleasant climate is ideal for outdoor recreation: hiking, cycling or horseback riding on local trails; kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding in the sheltered harbour or local lakes; and fishing, sailing or whale watching in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Sooke also supports a wealth of interests through communtiy organizations, such as music, theatre, arts, and team sports.
