The Pacific Northwest is known for lush evergreen forests, soaring totem poles, and misty outdoor endeavors. Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort fulfils these expectations and over-delivers with stunningly beautiful landscapes and beyond-cushy accommodations. Located on the northern end of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Nimmo Bay is the ideal place to unplug and connect in a whole new way. 


The Floating Lodge


Originally an old float house, the lodge was towed to Port McNeill from Gilford Island in 1980. It was then rebuilt to accommodate only eight lucky individuals, using hydroelectric systems and other sustainable methods to ensure it fit in seamlessly with the environment. Since then, the resort has expanded to accommodate up to 18 visitors, with nine private intertidal chalets. Nimmo Bay and has access to over 50,000 square miles of untamed wilderness via helicopter. 


Action-Packed Days


The Pacific Northwest might be rainy, but that doesn’t shorten the activity roster at Nimmo Bay. Guests enjoy water activities, like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, as well as land-based fun, like rock climbing and yoga. Feeling adventurous? Try your hand at windsurfing and then go on a bear-watching expedition. Ready to relax? Heli fly-fish world-class waters; then enjoy a sunset boat cruise with a glass of champagne. For a resort that hosts such a small number of guests, Nimmo Bay offers opportunities for active adventure that are truly astonishing.


Pacific Cuisine


The local gourmet dishes prepared at Nimmo Bay delight senses beyond taste. Breakfasts are hearty and served in the comfort of the main lodge with steaming coffee. Each fresh lunch of coastal cooking is paired with a perfect backdrop as you picnic in the wild—from atop a glacier, on a white sand beach, or wherever your expert guide has delivered you for the day. Dinner is served on the floating dock, and a bonfire crackles as you enjoy well-deserved sundowners.
