Telegraph Cove Marina and RV Park offers the only "hotel" in Telegraph Cove. We always stay at this hotel as we love being right in Telegraph Cove. The rooms are simple and clean. Our room had a king bed, table & chairs, sofa, tv, refrigerator, microwave, stove with oven, plates, pots pans, cutlery etc. The bathroom is spacious and offers good shelving for personal items.
All rooms offer a "marina" view. Lots of parking and easy access to the boat launch. You can watch the fishing boats come and go and check out their catch of the day or you can book a fishing charter that will pick you up in the cove. We personally have gone fishing with Randy's Fishing Charters (The Fishmaster) from Sointula and had a great time!
There is wildlife to watch right from the dock - blue heron's, sea otters, eagles, and once in a while bears. There is a viewing platform at the cove and trail that leads up through the residential area and then up to the RV park.
A bear watching tour Riptide Grizzly Tours and Stubbs Whale Watching both leave right from Telegraph Cove. If you prefer to drive around and explore there are some nice logging roads to roam around on and 4x4 just for fun. Port McNeil -for shopping, more restaurants, and ferry to Sointula or Alert Bay - is about a 10 minute drive, Port Alice - for more fishing - about 1 hour 15 minutes and Port Hardy - for the northern tip ocean views, local artisan gallery, fishing and beaches - about an hour -- if you like to explore the surrounding communities.
Telegraph Cove is beautiful and worth staying right in the cove if there is room available - booking in advance for July and August is recommended.
