During beginning of October 2008 I rode my Triumph Trident motorcycle with a sidecar 2200 km on the British Columbia Heritage Circle Tour. My first stop was Telegraph Cove located on Northern Vancouver Island near Port McNeil. Telegraph Cove is a quaint little community that has been restored to preserve its maritime heritage. The community started as one lineman cabin in 1911 for the telegraph line that extended from Campbell River to Telegraph Cove. Today whale watching, kayaking, and fishing charters are offered. The cove also has fine dinning in the Killer whale Cafe.
During my visit to Telegraph Cove I took in the Bones Project museum that has several assembled skeletons of marine mammals. A must see when visiting Telegraph Cover.
