Family-owned Nimmo Bay humbly started off as a quaint fishing lodge in June of 1981, established by Craig and Deborah Murray – two life-long respectful lovers of nature. Expanding through the years to eventually become what it is today which is a sustainable, eco-friendly, adventure and relaxation resort. It is currently managed by their oldest son, Fraser Murray and his wife Becky. 

Nimmo Bay prides itself on being consciously sustainable and environmentally proactive, leaving a very minimal footprint. Having received notable awards from the province due to their efforts, they depend on water powered electricity systems and solar energy to run over 80% of their establishment. They support local farms, use local products, compost, recycle and cut out excess waste, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote renewable energy, they are involved with fin-fishing activism and funding pivotal wildlife research. Most respectively, they assisted in B.C.’s decision to finally ban the hunting of grizzly bears as a trophy sport by offering hunters trips for two to their resort in exchange for their coveted license. 

After months of having been closed for the first part of 2020, Nimmo Bay had re-opened their doors on July 6th, welcoming with open arms and hearts, domestic travellers within Canada.


Open between May – October, Nimmo Bay offers the choice of 3, 4 or 7 nights stay with arrivals and departures slated on Mondays and Thursdays.
