The discovery of gold in Zeballos in the 1920’s resulted in a massive influx of miners and adventurers. The historic buildings in the village are a living reminder of those frontier days.

The road to Zeballos turns west off Highway 19 just north of Woss. The 40 km gravel logging road is well-maintained and continues beyond Zeballos to Fair Harbour. Along the way watch for bears, deer and elk crossing the road and eagles soaring overhead.

Zeballos History

The village is fast becoming a favourite destination for kayakers, sportsfishers and nature lovers who want to leave the crowds behind and experience the wild west coast of Vancouver Island. Comfortable accommodation and several cafes welcome visitors.

Nestled among towering forest-cloaked mountains, Zeballos sits at the head of Zeballos Inlet, gateway to Nootka Sound, world-famous for salmon fishing and kayaking opportunities. The inlet was named by Captain Alejandro Malaspina in 1792 after one of his lieutenants, Ciriaco Cevallos.

Tour the waters aboard your own vessel or arrange for an excursion with a local charter guide.
