Upon arrival in Vancouver International Airport, you will be met and transferred to the South Terminal for the flight to Port Hardy Airport. At Port Hardy a helicopter will be waiting for you for the final leg of your journey. Only accessible by air or water, Nimmo Bay Wilderness resort is found on Watson Island in the middle of the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. Whether you are looking for activities, wildlife or simply a wilderness escape, Nimmo Bay provides it all.
Overnight: Nimmo Bay
Start each day with the delicious Nimmo Bay breakfast. Once ready to seize the day, you can choose from a large range of activities. A kayak outing, complemented by freshly-ground coffee and glorious morning views, can be one of the best ways to start your day. However if you want to sneak up on nature, swap the kayak for a paddle board and silently slip unnoticed as bears, seals and eagles pass you by. For the less intrepid, power boats are also available for bear and whale watching; much more stable than a paddle board but exhilarating nonetheless. Hiking, rock climbing, snorkelling, paintballing, tubing, wind surfing and wake-boarding are some of the more active things on offer, but if all you want to do is relax you can enjoy photography, yoga, boat picnics, or simply read a book with the best that nature has to offer as your companion. Originally created for fishing, Nimmo Bay still maintains a strong fishing tradition and you'll find various types of salmon and trout as well as Steelhead and Dolly Varden. For the ultimate experience, Nimmo Bay has now introduced helicopters to transport keen fishermen to previously inaccessible, perfect fishing spots and providing a bird's eye view of the game. In the evening, a fire is lit on the floating dock around which guests can relax and swap stories of the day's adventure over cocktails, or guides will run pre-dinner evening boat cruises. The 3-course dinner is served both al fresco and within the cosy dining room, accompanied by an excellent selection of wine and beer and a fully stocked bar.
