Carter Bay Conservancy is a protected area on BC’s Central Coast.

Carter Bay Conservancy

Carter Bay Conservancy was established as part of the government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area.

This conservancy protects an open, south-facing bay, with an extensive estuary. The southern, deeper marine areas are important for Dall’s porpoises and of moderate importance for killer and humpback whales.

Carter Creek is an important salmon stream. A notable feature is the wreck of the “Ohio” dating to 1909. The wreck is a popular diving site.
