Telegraph Cove, A Recreational Wonderland
Telegraph Cove's history is typical of the North Island's
working coast. It begins in 1912 as a one-man telegraph station,
through out the years as a fish saltery and a sawmill village
that was taken over by the Air Force during World War II.
There are two full service campgrounds
with a total of 200 campsites. For the mariner and fisherman,
there are two marinas with 280 slips and two boat ramps...and
fishing charters to take you to where the big one are. Telegraph
Cove's proximity to Robson Bight (Michael Bigg) Ecological
Reserve rubbing beaches makes it the finest killer whale watching
venue on the B.C. coast. There is bear watching and birding
too. Grizzly Bear and black bear tours depart daily (in season).
Kayaking is big here...whether you rent one on your own or
take a guided ay trip or a multi-day expedition. There is
a wonderful variety of sleeping accommodations all within
walking distance from the marina.
Telegraph Cove has a wonderful "boardwalk" community
feel. It is even more of a "Must See" since the
creation of the Whale Interpretive Centre. Be sure to include
this stop on your North Island Vacation plans.
