For many, watching our winter storms with the waves crashing
on the cliffs and beaches can be a very exhilarating experience;
however, the more adventurous enjoy surfing and ocean kayaking along
our rugged coast line. Sooke is home to many very talented people
and their talents are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Many
incredible local artists and artisans have studios in our area and
we also have an active performing arts group.
This is a great time to enjoy the tidal pools of sea garden
at Botanical Beach as our tides are lower than normal. The Sea Lion
Caves are well worth a visit as the sea lions are present in large
numbers for mating season. Back at the farm, the sweet smell of
the almond and peach trees in bloom and the exhilarating colours
of the rhododendrons and azaleas are very relaxing.

An excellent time to go on an ocean sea tour, kayaking on glassy
