Island Roamer comprises of eight double or upper/lower bunk cabins, (two of which are in the bow usually reserved for crew members), three shared bathrooms with hot showers and a comfortable salon with an extensive natural history library.
All cabins have adequate storage space and there is electricity in each room when the generator is on (usually morning and afternoon). On deck there is a large covered seating area providing protection from all types of weather and a great spot to watch for wildlife. The vessel has kayaks on board for exploring the Inside Passage's creeks and waterways.
Wilderness Lodges can be found in extraordinary remote locations of Canada, surrounded by breath taking scenery and are ideal for both families and couples.
The experience of wilderness lodges often begins with just the journey to reach them. Usually inaccessible by road, small private charter flights, seaplanes, water taxis or helicopters are the only way in. Activities at the lodges may include horse riding, kayaking, paddle boarding and heli-adventures. A big highlight for many is the fishing, where the focus is on the world-class salmon fishing, in season.
It’s not just about the five star scenery but the service too. Expect superb amenities at the wilderness lodges. Sonora Resort, a Relais & Chateaux property, provide the utmost luxury in accommodation and spa facilities, whereas Nimmo will even take their paddle boards onto helicopters to go beach hopping and Clayoquot, well they will leave you wanting for nothing.
Some lodges have taken the imagination a step further, continuing the experience without compromising on luxury. The tented rooms at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort are as lavish as the lodges with four walls, and if camp is still too mainstream they will set you atop a remote mountain for the night. The cabins at Nimmo Bay are beautifully positioned on stilts over the water giving fantastic uninterrupted views.
