Discover Nature & Wildlife

Sonora Resort is a nature lover's paradise teeming with wildlife, breathtaking scenery, and unbridled adventure. The waters surrounding Sonora are home to an incredible ecosystem influenced by the strong tidal currents that flow between the Discovery Islands.

Marine Wildlife

Bask in the crystal clear waters where Orca and Humpback whales feed, Steller sea lions soak up the sun, Dall’s porpoises and Pacific White-Sided dolphins frolic in the channel, and sea birds swoop to pluck fish from swirling whirlpools. River otters or minks have been seen scrambling along the rocks and all five of the main Pacific salmon varieties swim the waters around Sonora including Chinook, Pink, Sockeye, Coho and Chum.
