Exploring Whiffen Spit

“I participated in True Key Resort’s #Canada150 contest in 2017. What a great challenge True Key set…to collect photos of activities in each of the destination areas of their resorts! It was intriguing and so much fun to participate. My husband and I visited familiar locations and we discovered so many new (to us) activities and ‘hidden gem’ destinations and events. I entered many photos and to my delight, I WON the contest!!  The fabulous reward is that during 2018 my husband and I will be staying and playing in five True Key properties in British Columbia: Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort in Parksville, Bighorn Meadows Resort in Radium Hot Springs, Harrison Beach Hotel in Harrison Hot Springs, Moutcha Bay Resort in Nootka Sound and Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina in Sooke. In fact, in March 2018, we initiated the adventures by staying in Sooke Harbour Resort.

Sooke Harbour View

Sooke Harbour Resort is an ideally situated home base whether folks are longing to ‘kick back and relax’ or are seeking adventure through fishing, boating, watersports, hiking, biking, and/or tours and expeditions. During our recent vacation, my husband and I felt welcomed by the staff and were delighted with all aspects of the accommodation. We felt both ‘at home’ and pampered in the well-appointed and spacious suite and appreciated the warm and inviting fireplace, the decks and patios with their amazing ocean views, the well-equipped kitchen and the comfy bedroom suite. Our walks, hikes, explorations and wildlife sightings in Sooke and the surrounding area were enhanced by the rainy mists that were part of the early Spring atmosphere. Since we could not experience everything that the region has to offer during our short stay, we plan to make a return visit!” – Connie S.

Here are Connie’s husbands favorite’s from their Sooke trip:

  • Very cool being a tourist in (or near) your own town – packing for a couple nights away is easy because you know if you’ve forgotten anything you can just make the short drive back home to get it
  • But at the same time, you’re away from home and all the usual chores that you feel compelled to do (laundry, cleaning, yard work)
  • Sooke Harbour Resort is right on the water with the attendant beautiful views and incredible sunsets
  • Very well-appointed accommodations – you’ll want to take the fireplace and granite countertops home with you (but probably not a good idea)
  • Take a fascinating discovery tour to locate the Chinese food take-out
  • Beach comb along Whiffin Spit – one side of the spit on the way out and the other on the way back – you never know what you’re going to find, sometimes money (hey, 35 cents is 35 cents)
  • Supper at Mom’s Diner – check out the pies – you’re on vacation – you’re allowed to skip the main course.
