Sooke Potholes Provincial Park

Sooke Potholes Provincial Park is a series of deep, polished rock pools and potholes carved naturally into the bedrock of the Sooke River. This area is a popular spot among locals.

Glacial action during the last ice age 15,000 years ago is responsible for the formations, as the moving, melting ice packs stripped the surface area and carved a path deep into the natural bedrock. Huge boulders carried along by the rushing river became lodged, were swirled against the canyon walls and consequently carved out the potholes that you see now.

The water is beautifully clean and clear, and lovely to swim in! We love taking a day trip here!
