The Zeballos River estuary is a designated Wetland Reserve and in the spring, hummingbirds, eagles and herons are plentiful, as are flickers, kingfishers and finches. Ravens, woodpeckers and wrens can also often be seen. In the winter months a flock of trumpeter swans calls the inlet home. Sea ducks, such as goldeneyes, buffleheads, mergansers, widgeons and scoters, are commonly found diving and dabbling about the inlet.
There are four provincial parks surrounding Zeballos: Artlish Caves, Nuchatlitz, Catala Island and Rugged Point Marine Park. Dozens of “undiscovered” caves, sink holes, and disappearing streams in the area await those who like to explore.
Visitors to Zeballos also enjoy rock climbing, kayaking, fresh and salt water fishing, and diving. The steep walls of Zeballos Inlet and Kyuquot Sound provide for exceptional wall dives. Tahsis Narrows and the Gardens are well known local diving sites.
