Sooke is the gateway to numerous ecotourism adventures as well as the West Coast Trail, Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, and Galloping Goose Trail.
Dozens of local bed and breakfasts as well as motels and campgrounds offer accommodation, and those looking to take advantage of local fishing opportunities will find what they need from marinas and fishing charter guides.
