Michael Thornton

For those interested in owning or investing in ‘super-natural' real estate, Michael Thornton is flying in from Victoria B.C. to summarize some opportunities at the SookePoint Ocean Cottage Resort & Marina on Vancouver Island.

SookePoint is a peninsula on the extreme SW Tip of Canada, surrounded by a rich undersea garden that attracts an abundance of salmon, whales, sea birds and marine mammals. The Southern Resident Killer Whales and transients frequently swim through Orca Alley right below. The US Center for Whale Research and the Canadian Department of Fisheries & Oceans maintain hydrophones and viewing stations at SookePoint because of its prime location for land-based whale watching. 


To deliver a lifetime of iMax front-row nature experiences for residents and guests, SookePoint has secured special tourism approval to build ‘Ocean Cottages’ and ‘Yacht Suites’ just 5 metres (16’) from the sea. SookePoint also has unique dual zoning. This permits unlimited occupancy plus the ability to earn the highest daily rates from overnight resort rental income. 


With the least rainfall on the wild west coast and the warmest winters in Canada, Sookepoint is on the sunset boundary of a huge 3,600-acre wilderness park. The Wilderness Park features 50 km of nature trails, including the 6-hour (each way) Coast Trail with 10 km of virgin oceanfront. This is rated as one of the very best day hikes in Canada.

Since 1988 Michael Thornton has structured and managed 28 real estate investment funds, from capitalization through payout. In addition, he is a joint-venture partner with an NHL team-owner building over 500 homes around a golf course in the Fraser Valley. 


Michael is the founder and developer of SookePoint, and devoted 6 years that included 64 public meetings across Greater Victoria to secure comprehensive zoning for 127 waterfront, mountaintop and ocean-view lots, a 115-berth Marina, a small golf course and this exceptional Destination Resort along Canada’s South Pacific.   

Michael will explain some of the reasons why he is most inspired and passionate about this project, and how others may wish to participate. For more information, see videos and photos at and attend this presentation.
