Weather Day Activities
Being located in the middle of the Great Bear Rainforest, Nimmo Bay is subject to certain amounts of rain, wind, and fog. Most days, this will not prevent you from enjoying your Helicopter Adventure however, if Mother Nature does not want us to fly, we have other activities to keep you busy. In the event of a “weather day” your adventure activities may include:
- Saltwater halibut fishing on our 36’ covered boat
- Saltwater salmon fishing in our flat bottom aluminum boat
- Fly fishing in Big Nimmo Bay off the beach
- Fly fishing lessons
- Guided forest hikes
- Whale watching tours
- Day kayak trips
- Yoga classes
- Bear watching tours
- Ocean waterfall tours
*Activities cannot be pre planned and are dependant on weather and the wildlife in the area. While it is very likely you will see an abundance of wildlife, this is never guaranteed. Once you’ve arrived, together with our guides, you create an adventure itinerary at Nimmo Bay. No adventure plans are pre-arranged and all activities are subject to change and based on availability. Please feel free to let our reservations staff know if there are particular activities you’d like to focus on.
Helicopter Day Trip Cancellations
*Helicopter day trips are pre-booked and cannot be changed at the guest’s request. If a guest is ill or if Mother Nature isn’t agreeing with us, we will do our best to make up for the loss, however, there are no refunds for last minute cancellations or changes.
*Our A Star helicopters seat up to 6 guests however this is dependant on the total weight of your group. If the total weight is exceeded, you will have to secure a second helicopter to accommodate your party.
