Corlys: "If we further seal the Gullet, we can cut off all seaborne travel and trade to King's Landing."
Rhaenys: "I shall take Meleys and patrol the Gullet myself."
— Corlys Velaryon and Rhaenys Targaryen[src]

The Gullet[1] is the stretch of ocean located between Dragonstone and Driftmark. Blackwater Bay opens into the Gullet, connecting it with the overall Narrow Sea.

History[]

House of the Dragon: Season 1[]

At the start of the Dance of the Dragons, Corlys Velaryon and Rhaenys Targaryen prepare to blockade the Gullet with the Velaryon fleet and the dragon Meleys in order to cut off trade to King's Landing, which remains under the control of the Greens.[1]

In the books[]

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Stannis Baratheon's fleet is scattered by a storm in the Gullet prior to the Battle of the Blackwater. This event causes Stannis's attack to be delayed long enough for the armies led by Tywin Lannister and Mace Tyrell to reach King's Landing in time and take the Stannis's army in the back.
