Telegraph Cove is a delightful spot on the northeastern coast of Vancouver Island, BC. Originally established in 1912 as the northern station of the Campbell River telegraph line, the tiny community has grown from a single shanty housing a lone telegraph lineman to about 20 year-round residents. With the end of the telegraph and the shutting of both the fish canning warehouse and sawmill, the community now thrives on tourism. A rough jewel of pristine beauty, Telegraph Cove balances on its boardwalks and wharves as the jump-off point to some of the best marine vistas on our west coast.
