Voted one of the ten best “towns” in Canada to visit by travel writers (as published in Harrowsmith Magazine), Telegraph Cove is tucked away on the eastern coast of Northern Vancouver Island in one of the last virtually untouched areas of the North American continent. This tiny sawmill and cannery community was important to the development of the North Island and has a rich and colorful history. From 1911 when the first telegraph operator took up residence in Telegraph Cove this little cove has been a unique part of Northern Vancouver Island.
Telegraph Cove Resorts takes pride in being able to present it to the general public in as close to the original condition as possible. You’ll love our cozy cabins/cottages along the boardwalk and our campground / RV park in the old growth forest.
The most important reason people return year after year to Telegraph Cove Resort?
Not only is it historically significant to the area, it is home to Stubbs Island Whale Watching, the oldest and most renowned Orca (Killer Whale) whale watching company on the Pacific coast. Whales, bald eagles, dolphins, porpoises, otters, bears, and an endless and diverse list of marine and forest animals inhabit the surrounding area. Tide Rip Tours will take you up majestic Knight Inlet to view grizzly bears at Glendale cove. They may be foraging in the estuary area or feeding on salmon as they migrate up the Glendale River.

This is a historical area, and we have worked hard to restore and maintain original boardwalks and cottage buildings. Due to the extreme fire hazard of the wooden boardwalk and docks we have had to eliminate smoking in these areas. Guests in the houses have designated outdoor smoking areas, and visitors may smoke on the decks at the restaurant and pub, or around the Resort square.
