  • Our resort services (listed below) are available to our sea-faring visitors Friday – Sunday as well as on Tuesdays and Wednesdays
  • In order to make a reservation, we will need the following information: vessel name and size, group size, all guest names and ages, any allergies, estimated arrival times, and a credit card for holding your spot

4 ways to enjoy nimmo as a boating guest


It would be our pleasure to welcome you for an unforgettable dining experience at our resort restaurant, Little River. Located in our new lodge building, facing out towards the bay so you can enjoy the view while sipping from our innovative wine list and dining on locally-infused West Coast culinary creations. For boating visitors, we welcome dinner reservations made at least 24 hours in advance of arrival. Dinner is served at 7pm, but we recommend arriving on the dock by 6:30 to enjoy our nightly cocktail service. Learn more about our sustainable and inventive culinary philosophies here.

Dinner is $185 per person, which includes one welcome drink per guest. Please note that other alcohol, gratuity and taxes are not included.


After days at sea, you may be craving a grounding massage or other rejuvenating wellness treatment. Boating visitors are welcome to peruse our wellness menu and select a service that speaks to them. As always, please respect our booking policy of 24 hours in advance, in order to allow time to coordinate your treatment. Our booking team would also be happy to help plan something special for you, such as a wellness-themed afternoon where you head out to our floating sauna dock for a warming steam, followed by a bespoke treatment and a soak in our cedar hot tubs, facing the rush of the waterfall that descends from the hillside behind our resort. No matter your wellness dreams, we would be delighted to help you plan a journey into rest and relaxation that compliments your time on the water.

Please note that there is a $25 surcharge for boating guests who wish to book wellness treatments or private yoga sessions.


What could be a better compliment to your voyage along the inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest than to see its awe-inspiring beauty from above? We are happy to offer our boating visitors the option to book a helicopter-fuelled adventure from Nimmo Bay. The options are endless when booking a private helicopter day; you may choose to venture up to far-off peaks for breathtaking hikes, or to visit a 10,000 year-old glacier and standup paddle board its milky blue waters, or you may be more interested in accessing remote rivers for incredible fly fishing opportunities (please note that our fishing adventures are catch and release only). Learn more about our wide variety of helicopter trips here.

Helicopter adventure rates are $6,015 per day for 1-2 people, or $10,430 per day for larger groups of 3-6. This rate includes exclusive use of the helicopter for your private group, a gourmet picnic lunch that includes drinks, all the adventure gear required, and a personal guide for whichever activities your choose – fishing, alpine hiking, kayaking, water fall and glacier tours, or bear watching. Please note that this rate does not include premium alcohol, gratuity or any required fishing licenses (but we would be happy to help you acquire those ahead of your visit).

stay the night

No matter how comfortable your boat is, if you find yourself craving a change (or just a cozy night on solid ground), we would be happy to accommodate you in one of our modern, picturesque cabins. We offer both forested area and intertidal cabins, facing the water. All of our cabins come equipped with two bedrooms, one bathroom, a lounge area, sumptuous special touches and unprecedented housekeeping service.

Cabins are available for $700 per night for our boating guests, based on double occupancy. If you have a larger group, an additional $150/guest per night will be included.

We look forward to welcoming you ashore!
