Worth a visit
Sep. 2020
This is a lovely walk out on the spit. There are lots of benches for sitting on, lots of birds and seals to watch along with boats coming and going. A light ocean breeze when we walked made it delightful. It lacked sufficient parking nearby though so be prepared for extra walking. It had a pit toilet on site with hand sanitizer. Lots of people walking dogs. Lots of wood washed up of interesting shapes and sizes.
Very relaxing.
How long you stay is weather dependent,

Amazing spot for an evening walk or if you’re limited on time but need an outdoor fix...round trip is about 2.7km long...dogs allowed on leash, multiple bathrooms, benches along the way and some amazing sunset views in the evening!! Lots of birds in and around the water too!!

Great flat walk.

Dog friendly flat walk. Wheelchair is OK as the town does a fantastic job of keeping it cleared. They have now installed water fountains'

The Beauty of Nature
Dec. 2019
This is a really calming and relaxing walk along the Spit .... a path that leads alongside the sea with some beautiful scenery to take in. Lots of sea birds pay a visit too and, sometimes, you'll see a seal or two. There is parking available. Well worth a visit.

Waterside Walk
Oct. 2019
This is a very pleasant walk along a mostly level path that lets you wander alongside the sea and take in some stunning scenery. Plenty of wildlife in the form of seals and birds are on hand to attract the eye, altogether a pleasing and enjoyable walk. Parking is available and access is good and there are seats scattered along the path should you wish to linger a while.

Great walk to stretch your legs & view the bay
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We had rode our motorcycle from Victoria to Sooke & came across the Whiffen Spit walk. We walked all the way to the very end & back & enjoyed the water views. The weather was beautiful so it was so clear out. I even came across a beautiful painted rock that we picked up & replaced at another location so that we could help it travel along.

Sea waves, sea air and sunset = a winning combination
Jun. 2019 • Couples
This quiet, leisurely walk almost totally surrounded by water, was a photographer's delight. We enjoyed the sea breeze, setting sun and the pebble beaches strewn with driftwood. Not overrun with people and dogs were well under control by their owners. One of the highlights of our day. Would love to go back.

without all the dog crap it would be heavenly
May 2019 • Friends
came here for a walk last year and it was gorgeous. now, sadly it is a huge dog toilet. one woman had five off leash large dogs and didnt pick up after any of them. most walkers had one or two but again just left the dog gifts where they dropped.

Great for a quiet ramble to the end of the spit
May 2019 • Couples
What a wonderful place for a walk. When we were there was adequate parking and there was a porta potty in the parking lot. Many of the locals walk their dogs out to the end of the spirit and you will find a fair number of runners along the path. If you devote 60 to 90 minutes it is a comfortable ramble with great views of Sooke Harbour and the mountains along the Washington coast across the Juan de Fuca Strait. Found this by accident but it’s one of the nicest walks on southern Vancouver Island.
