It is a small town. It is by the sea. It is beautiful! The coastal road here winds through a temperate rainforest. It rains everyday in winter here, but in summer it is beautiful here. The forest has huge trees, wild deer, and black bears! The black bears are not too dangerous though. They are not as dangerous as Grizzly Bears.

When moving to Sooke, B. C. be aware that Sooke is bear country. There are numerous bear sightings each year. Due to that there is a large bear population in the area you need to take the necessary precautions to secure your garbage and food waste bins.
