The campy feel to this place is perfect for a family getaway; all of the buildings have kept their original charm from the past, but with upgraded fresh decor on the interior. Telegraph Cove was Voted one of the ten best "towns" in Canada to visit by travel writers (as published in Harrowsmith Magazine) with the distinct charm of a small town. Stubbs Island Whale Watching is the main attraction here, with whale watching rates of $84 for adults and $79 for children 2-12 years. The best time to see whales at the oldest and most renowned Orca (Killer Whale) whale watching company on the Pacific coast is in high season - from mid July to the end of August.
Parents will love
Parents will love the full-service campsite (including shower laundry and washroom services) and the short walking distance to a fully stocked General Store. There is also a fully-licensed restaurant and pub waiting to serve your family a delicious meal nearby. If you would rather cook your own meals, however, the cabins are self-contained with all the kitchen equipment you need!
Most importantly, Telegraph Cove is the perfect spot to experience nature with your kids and learn alongside with them about all the indigenous species of the area.
Kids will love
Kids will love seeing whales, bald eagles, dolphins, porpoises, otters, bears, and an endless and diverse list of marine and forest animals that inhabit the surrounding area - which you may catch a glimpse of on the guided nature walk.
