...and sometimes other things

Telegraph Cove

Telegraph Cove is tiny. How tiny, you ask? Most of the buildings are not built beside the water but over the water.

There’s more to do here than meets the eye. But not a lot. There’s a pub and a restaurant, a coffee shop, and general store selling mostly gifts. There’s also a lot of overnight accommodation in the old mill buildings that attracts a surprising number of European visitors. I think whale-watching and kayaking are the big draws.

There’s also a modest Whale museum.

The exciting news for land lubbers is that you, too, can experience the charms of Telegraph Cove because it’s on Vancouver Island. Just take the ferry to Victoria, then travel 290 miles (470 km) up-Island and you’re here!
