Wildlife Viewing

Sonora Resort is surrounded by wildlife. Birdwatchers can see Bonaparte’s gulls, bald eagles, great blue herons, cormorants,  and kingfishers—all are frequent visitors. River otters or minks have been seen scrambling along the rocks. Harbour seals are spotted daily from the deck. During the season, dolphins and porpoises sometimes frolic in the channel, and the occasional pod of orcas surfaces nearby. To ensure you get a good look, binoculars are provided in your room.

Here are some images of the wildlife around Sonora Resort.
