Enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, Great Bear Rainforest hiking, whale watching, grizzly bear watching, marine life tours and so much more.
At the family owned and operated Nimmo Bay Resort come peacefully face to face with the coastal rainforest's most beloved creatures, from humpback and orca whales to bears foraging along the shoreline. Explore an abundance of wilderness and wildlife from land, sea and sky. This adventure is ideal for those looking to relax and enjoy the magic of Nimmo Bay Resort and all of its spectacular amenities, whether it be adventuring along the BC coast or relaxing in the comforts of your personal chalet.
You will be taken on guided wilderness adventures by the Nimmo Bay experienced staff. Go searching for Orca and Humpback whales while learning 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. Spend the day on remote islands and beaches and 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. 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.
Explore the old growth forests and wild rainforest. 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. Or you may choose to relax around the resort, enjoying the peace and tranquility that only Nimmo Bay offers.
