A map showing the location of Blackwater Bay on the east coast of Westeros.

"And how many ships do you have? The ones still afloat, Ser Davos, not at the bottom of Blackwater Bay."
Tycho Nestoris to Davos Seaworth[src]

Blackwater Bay is an inlet of the Narrow Sea, located on the east coast of Westeros. The great city of King's Landing sits on Blackwater Bay at the mouth of the Blackwater Rush.[1]


Season 2

Stannis's fleet is destroyed on Blackwater Bay.

The fleet of Stannis Baratheon sails into Blackwater Bay as a prelude to an attack on King's Landing. Tyrion Lannister destroys part of the fleet with wildfire, but this only manages to delay the landing of a significant number of Stannis' troops, triggering the Battle of the Blackwater.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Blackwater Bay is a fairly large body of water, held between the arms of Crackclaw Point to the north and Massey's Hook to the south, with the island of Dragonstone guarding the entrance to the bay. Elements of the King's Fleet patrol the Bay and ensure it is kept free from piracy.

Aside from King's Landing and Dragonstone, the largest port on the bay is Duskendale (which serves as a secondary port for King's Landing when the main port is overwhelmed with traffic), while the largest island is Driftmark, the seat of House Velaryon.
