Best Places to See in BC - Sooke Basin

Sooke Basin is located on southwestern Vancouver Island
in gorgeous British Columbia.
Sooke Basin drains into Sooke Harbor, which
in turns drains into the Juan De Fuca Strait.
A bike or car exploration around this
enchanting area of Vancouver Island
offers up some spectacular West Coast

The 1790 Spanish explorer Manuel Quimper
gave Sooke Basin the name
Puerta de Revilla Gigedo
in honor of the Viceroy of New Spain
Güemes Padilla Horcasitas, Count of Revillagigedo.

There are four small islets in Sooke Basin,
one with the mysterious name of Deadman's Island.

With numerous islets and coves, beaches and bistros
the Sooke Basin is a wonderful place to
spend many happy hours wandering
and exploring.
Bring a camera and sense of adventure.
You won't be disappointed!
