How To Get To Zeballos

By Land:

The turnoff from the Island Highway (Highway 19) to Zeballos is located just north of Woss, about 390 kilometers north of Victoria. The 40 km gravel logging road is well-maintained and continues beyond Zeballos to Fair Harbour. Along the way watch for logging trucks, and bears, deer and elk crossing the road. There is no public transport to Zeballos. However,  Zeballos Expeditions provides ground transportation to Zeballos from a number of points on Vancouver Island.


By Sea:

BC Ferries has scheduled departures from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo and Duke Point. The crossing by ferry is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. From the ferry terminus, road signs will direct you to connect with the Island Highway. Estimated driving time from Nanaimo to Zeballos is about 4 ½ hours.


By Air:

Flights are available directly from the South Terminal of the Vancouver Airport to Port Hardy Airport. Pacific Coastal Airlines provides scheduled flights to Port Hardy. At the Port Hardy Airport you will have to arrange a vehicle to transport you to Zeballos. The drive is approximately 2 hours long.
