Eagle Cove
Beachfront Guest Suite - Sooke, BC
What's Special About Eagle Cove


a vast expanse of sea and sky overlooking
our beautiful beach and cove.

Relax in a serene natural environment ... our property is visited by river otters, black tail deer and abundant bird life. Tiny resplendent Anna’s Hummingbirds reside here in the coastal rainforest year round. Observe Great Blue Herons, Black Oystercatchers and Belted Kingfishers as they hunt their prey from our shore.

it's only natural.



watch whales.
soaring eagles.

Revel in the panorama of ocean and mountain from our rocky knoll, rising above the sea, an as-close-as-you can be vantage point for watching soaring eagles, seabirds, seals, stellar sea lions and breaching Orca whales in the Strait of Juan de Fuca...


kayak. canoe. row. sail.

Watch passing ships and fishing boats or adventure to sea yourself … go fishing, as Sooke is justly renowned for fantastic year round freshwater and saltwater angling. Waterborne, visitors also kayak, canoe, row or sail to explore the endless coves and inlets of our coastline. Keep company with the King of Kelps … the Bull Kelp anchored in our cove is one of the largest west coast seaweeds, growing as much as 12 meters in a single season.

be at home
with wildlife.

Reflect on time and tide … water and wind erode the rocks over time, producing fantastical galleries and crags housing inter tidal life. Starfish, sea anemones, sponges, crabs and mussels inhabit shimmering tide pools. One species, the Ochre Sea Star, a 12-armed creature that preys on mussels and barnacles, is most often seen in a tidal pool shaded by sea lettuce, or clinging to coastal rocks.

Read a story in stone, on a seaweed fringed pebble beach in a cove shaped by sedimentary rock. Study this rock of ages in strata of sandstone, conglomerate and shale. Wonder at the why of waves as they break rhythmically onto the shore: no two waves are identical. Experience a solitary sunrise, or unwind under a brilliant starry sky on our pristine private beach.

escape your everyday.
try something new.

Blessed with so many surf-swept ocean beaches and surrounded by old-growth rainforest, Otter Point and the Sooke area feature many outstanding recreational pastimes …



Further west, French Beach and China Beach parks beckon to beachcombers and birders to enjoy pounding surf or peaceful forest trails. Watch the wind surfers where the Jordan River meets the ocean swells. Explore our coastline up close with a walk on the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, or undertake a more arduous hike on the famous West Coast Trail. Venture out to the very end of West Coast Road to visit the marine classroom of Botanical Beach and the remote picturesque village of Port Renfrew.

birding paradise.
magical rainforest.

Get away from motorized traffic and enjoy the peace and quiet of walking, mountain biking or horseback riding on the Galloping Goose Trail, a linear park following the ocean shore, passing by lakes and weaving through forests, linking Victoria to Sooke.

swim. bicycle. take a walk on the wild side.

Pack a picnic and your swimsuit to the Sooke Potholes Park, a sun-baked swimming hole on the unspoiled Sooke River … or visit the Potholes in the Fall to see the salmon spawning.

Sooke’s SeaParc Leisure Centre has a swimming pool and sauna open year round for aquatic recreation, and an arena open for ice skating and hockey games during the winter.
