The Sooke Basin is located on the southwestern tip of Vancouver Island, Canada, only 20 minutes from Victoria (40 minutes from downtown). On the western side of the cove, as pictured here, the winds are light and the ocean is mirror-like. Adventure awaits in this pretty and uncrowded ocean playground.
My wife & I discovered Sooke Basin on Vancouver Island about 10 years ago. On a trip to Victoria, we wanted to see the natural and scenic beauty of southern Vancouver Island and we ended up finding a coastal paradise. Things to do Sooke, BC include hiking, biking, walking, sailing, fishing, crabbing and just plain relaxing. Ecotourism in Canada doesn't get much better than this.
One of the ultimate Canadian adventures is to hike the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, BC. It's an adventure into personal accomplishment - a physically demanding, mentally challenging trek through ancient forests, along endless beaches and across deep gorges. It's also features some of the most spectacular rain forest scenery you'll ever witness.
The Othello Tunnels are located in the scenic mountains outside of Hope, BC, Canada. These tunnels were a part of the former Kettle Valley Railway which ran a rail-line through southern British Columbia. This section of the railway was decommissioned in 1959. Kids and adults alike will love the adventure of walking through the series of tunnels, emerging on the other side to spectacular Canadian scenery.
