Whiffen Spit Park - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This picture shows Whiffen Spit Park near Sooke. The panorama was taken late in the afternoon at low tide, with a low sun and storm clouds hanging over Vancouver Island. The bank of clouds on the horizon on the sea obscure the mountains of the Olympic National Park in the USA

Whiffen Spit Park - FURTHER INFORMATION

Whiffen Spit Park - Greater Victoria visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Whiffen Spit Park' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Vancouver Island.

Whiffen Spit Park is a natural spit that extends over the mouth of Sooke Harbour on Vancouver Island, providing protection for the inner harbour. The spit has been designated a park, with a gravel walkway to the lighthouse at the far end. The distance is longer than you might think, taking about 40 minutes round trip. On the way you will pass rocky beaches and drift wood as only Vancouver Island can provide - entire trees and logs washed up and bleached by the wind and sun.

Other pictures available show a Stone beach at low tide, part of the seaward side of Whiffen Spit and some of the driftwood on Whiffen Spit.

Whiffen Spit is popular with locals, offering panoramic views over Sooke Basin and all the way over to the Olympic Mountains near to Seattle in the USA on a clear day.

TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
