Sooke Public Boat Launch

Birds of a Feather Marine EcoTours utlizes over 40 departure locations on Vancouver Island. In the greater Victoria area we typically depart from either Pedder Bay Marina in Metchosin, Brentwood Bay public docks at 899 Marchant Rd, Brentwood Bay, the Sooke Public Boat Launch 6933 West Coast Rd. in Sooke shown below, the Fleming Beach boat launch on 1101 Munro St. in Esquimalt, the inner harbour in downtown Victoria, or Tulista Park in Sidney approximately 20 minutes north of downtown Victoria.

Sooke has two boat launches literally next to each other. Our favourite shown here is owned and operated by the District of Sooke and is located literally at the Best Western Prestige hotel. The pay station machine is located to the left of the ramp, at the end of the utility building and accepts cash and credit cards.  Signage advises users of the ramp and boat launch parking spots. Tickets not displayed on your dash will result in parking tickets. In addition to the standard $10 launch/park ticket the machine also sells resident/non-resident annual passes which purchasers can bring to the municipal hall to exchange for the actual pass decal.
