  • The spit is a great place to hang out. Even had a killer whale pass through the entrance. However getting a view after a walk from the East sooke side is a another great perspective.  more »

  • My first time here.I noticed many people birding while we walked to the point.I did see more dogs off leash and not that birds.When we were leaving I noticed a sign No bicycles and a few people locking theirs up and walking.I asked why no bikes and was told the bikes scared away the birds.When I committed about the dogs off leash and scarring away more birds than bikes. They had no explanation and didn't know.I do dabble in watching and riding a bike. My bike has less impact to the environment than any dog for a birding.
  • A must see when in Sooke. Take a long walk on this open trail & breathe in the fresh ocean air. There is plenty of driftwood for the taking if your crafty. Beautiful view of the ocean. There is limited parking (free) and watch your step as some dog lovers do not stoop and scoop.
  • Beautiful sea side public park in Sooke. B.C. Canada
  • This is the quintessential dog walking spot for the Sooke area. Plenty of parking at the spit itself, or above on the road and public parking lot across from Sooke Harbour House.
  • Come here when it's a bit stormy, easier parking, less people and great wave action.
