The Scene:
While flying over the Broughton Archipelago from Vancouver Island, you will appreciate the wilderness setting and the remoteness of Nimmo Bay. Nimmo Bay's floating lodge is located at the bottom of Mt. Stephens, with nothing but tree cover mountains and the pacific ocean in sight. Upon arrival, you'll be welcomed by the owner/operator Fraser Murray & his wife Becky, along with their daughter as the 'official greeter' of Nimmo. Their warm hospitality and connection to the environment is evident in the design and care of the resort, while the committed staff will not miss an opportunity to go above and beyond to make your Nimmo experience one you will never forget.
Design:
Nimmo Bay has been designed to work with the environment and create a resort that compliments the ocean and mountains that surrounds it. Nimmo Bay values quality, and that is evident in the design and furniture of the resort. Throughout the resort you'll find various art instalments created by various local artists. All buildings and amenities have been constructed of locally sourced wood and materials.

This waterfall provides Nimmo Bay with it's delicious drinking water as well as 85% of the resorts energy.
