Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort: The Experience

Located in British Columbia, Canada

Wild Pacific salmon fishing, black-bear watching, orca spotting, heli-hiking, and open-ocean boating are just a few in an incredible array of wilderness adventures available to guests at Nimmo Bay. Expert guides, survivalists, artists, and naturalists provide guests with a fascinating education on the wildlife, the old-growth forests, plants, and culture of the region. They are deeply committed to preserving both the natural and cultural heritage of Great Bear Rainforest, and since most of them are native to the area, they have decades of memories and experiences to share. Guests can choose from two all-inclusive packages that can be customized to fit a variety of interests.

Things to Do

Activity inclusions vary by rate type and package. Please inquire with the lodge when requesting your reservation, as some activities must be booked in advance.

Water Sports

Hit the water in a variety of ways, navigating by kayak or paddleboard, snorkeling, tubing, wake boarding, windsurfing, or swimming.


Bring your mind and body into balance with a yoga class or therapeutic treatment in one of two massage rooms. Discover where nurture meets nature at the remote, floating sauna, nestled amongst the wilderness and accessible only by boat or kayak.

Outdoor Exploration
