Telegraph Cove Resort, a picturesque destination on the northeast coast of Vancouver Island, is teaming up with Prince of Whales Whale & Marine Wildlife Adventures to enhance marine wildlife habitat and research while providing greater opportunities for outstanding eco-tourism.
Resort owners Gordie and Marilyn Graham are pleased to welcome one of the province’s largest and most-respected whale watching and eco-adventure companies to their recreational seaside haven.
“I’ve always been impressed by the Prince of Whales’ work in marine conservation and academic research,” Gordie said. “Their principled approach dovetails perfectly with our continuing efforts to protect marine wildlife while delighting and educating visitors with awe-inspiring experiences in nature.”
The Grahams established a campground and marina at Telegraph Cove in 1979, drawing enthusiasts to the great recreational ocean fishing. Over 40 years, their work restoring original buildings for tourist accommodation has brought life back to the former sawmill town. Today, the resort, which can accommodate up to 500 guests, also includes a restaurant and pub, general store, small hotel and Telegraph Cove’s Whale Interpretative Centre. One of the last boardwalk settlements left on Vancouver Island, Telegraph Cove attracts thousands of whale watchers, fishermen, boaters, campers and kayakers every year.
