Who We Are and What We Get Up To

Going beyond the end of the road and seeing what others are missing.

You've come to the end of the road, the only way to go further is by boat. Let Tiicmis show you what others are missing. When you spend your entire day, or vacation on the water, glamping in a YAG, in nature you don't miss a thing. We are all about connecting you to mother nature. Imagine eating fresh prawns, oysters, cod, clams, muscles, crab and scallops? All you need is some butter and garlic eh? Exploring islets in the Broken Group and along the shores you will cross paths with hundreds or probably thousands of different species of fish, birds, mammals, insects and sea creatures.  Kayak, snorkel, dive, SUP, surf, hike, explore...

Comparing Costs

$300 per person per night

The value in a Tiicmis experience is great when you compare it to staying at a local resort or bed and breakfast @ $200+ per night (3pm-11am), a 3 hour bear or whale watch $125, Kayak tour $100, eating out or buying from COOP $1,000+ So you see for $300 a night per person, it really is a sweet deal. So book now before we sell out and raise our prices!
