Bay of Puck or Puck Bay (Polish: Zatoka Pucka) is a shallow western part of the Bay of Gdansk in the southern Baltic Sea, off the shores of Polish land of Gdansk Pomerania. It is separated from the open sea by the Hel Peninsula.

Average depth is 2-6 metres and there is also a shallow sand-bank from Rewa Cape to Kuznica in the middle of Hel Peninsula. The bay is available only for small fishing boats and yachts, which have to stick to the strict deeper routes.

Gdańsk Bay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (169 words)
The western part of Gdańsk Bay is formed by the shallow waters of the Bay of Puck and the southeastern part is the Vistula Lagoon, separated by the Vistula Spit and connected to the open sea by the Strait of Baltiysk.
The Bay of Gdańsk receives the waters of the River Vistula directly via three branches -- the Leniwka, the Śmiała Wisła, and the Martwa Wisła -- and indirectly via the Vistula Lagoon with 2 branches: the Nogat and the Szkarpawa.
The first forms the Bay of Puck while the latter defines the Vistula Lagoon, accessed through the Strait of Baltiysk.
