Telegraph Cove hosts season opening

Telegraph Cove opened its doors in a welcoming luncheon for local businesses

TELEGRAPH COVE — One year away from its centennial celebration, Telegraph Cove Resorts opened its doors last week in a welcoming luncheon for the summer season for local businesses, tourism officials, media and government employees. The season opening was hosted by owners Marilyn and Gordon Graham.

Guests were taken on a tour of the boardwalk and introduced to the historic cottages, most of which have been restored for guests staying at the resort.

At the end of the boardwalk was the Johnson Strait Whale Interpretive Centre, a historic museum full of bones and artifacts from the North Island. One of these is the enormous skeleton of a gray whale that was killed by a cruise ship.

Guests were then treated to a salmon BBQ, an event the Grahams will make available three nights a week starting July 1, or by request.

Many of Telegraph Cove’s local businesses were represented, ranging from whale watching to grizzly tours and kayaking tour and rental operators.

A number of events will be taking place this summer, including the Annual Boardwalk Craft Fair on July 30. Meanwhile, the resort prepares for its 100-year celebration next summer.
