Arriving at Telegraph Cove is like taking a step back in time! This historic boardwalk community which is situated on the north eastern coast of Vancouver Island in BC Canada, has played a number of roles in it's nearly 100 year existence. First established as a linesman station for the Telegraph line, a salmon saltery and small sawmill were later built in the 1920's.
Today Telegraph Cove, which is home to the first whale watching company on the BC coast, is a resort community offering accommodation, restaurants, camping, full service marina, general store, wildlife watching tours and a number of events throughout the summer months.
Sunset is a magical time of day on Northern Vancouver Island and in particular at Telegraph Cove, with the lights of the cafe and pub reflecting on the near still water and boats tied up in the marina. The sunset hues show through the narrow opening of the cove and light the evening sky; silhouetting the trees which surround the community.
View across the marina towards the Killer Whale Cafe and Saltery Pub, and the old red building which houses the Whale Interpretive Centre at the Telegraph Cove Resort in the historic boardwalk community of Telegraph Cove during sunset, Northern Vancouver Island, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
