Experience an intimate family owned and operated resort offering the opportunity for travelers slow down and reconnect to nature and one another.
Located at the base of Mt.Stevens, in the middle of the Great Bear Rainforest, Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort exists at a different vibration than the rest of the world. Accessible only by helicopter or floatplane, Nimmo Bay offers something for everyone. Whether you are a seasoned angler or have never touched a rod, our 'Heli-Fishing' adventure is for you. Our 'Helicopter Adventure' is for people of all ages who are looking to explore 50,000 square miles of extraordinary wilderness-old growth forests, white sand beaches, hot springs & more.
Canadian Signature Experience
Your Helicopter is the key to your adventure. Fly to killer whales and join the team of experts, complete with hydrophones, as you transfer from helicopter to a 60’ boat to follow the whales as they swim in the peaceful waters of Johnstone Strait. Learn about breaching, rubbing rocks and the different pod names. Understand the wherefore and why of these magnificent creatures as you spend time with them in their backyard pool.
After being dropped off on a Broughton Archipelago beach, you will again enter your private helicopter to fly off to yet another marvel, the white sand beaches of the West Coast. Here you eat lunch as the blue waters of the Pacific wash your feet and the sun warms your very soul. Search out Japanese glass fishing floats, explore tidal pools or take a swim. If all of this is not enough, ocean-kayak on the quiet mainland fjords of the Inside Passage. Professional kayak guides will introduce you to the wonderful life forms of intertidal waters. Watch eagles, stellar sea lions, seals, blue herons and otters. Glide quietly over starfish, crab and sea urchin as the tranquility of the moment overwhelms you. Float down a magical river in a guided raft. Gaze up at the 6,000 foot mountains as you pass them by. Touch forests of cedar, hemlock, spruce and pine as you glide seaward on this glacial melt, home to thousands of pacific salmon, trout, otter, aquatic birds and bears.
Then it’s off to the alpine mountain meadows and diamond blue glaciers of the Coast Range, as Heli-Hiking becomes your next challenge. This is as close to heaven as humans can get. You will go places no one has ever gone before, face to face with cloud level mountain goats, flying over bear and moose, and discovering places such as Paint Pot, Silverthrone and Twin Lakes that will live in your memory forever.
