The Bay of Puck or Puck Bay (Polish: Zatoka Pucka, German: Putziger Wiek), is a shallow western branch of the Bay of Gdańsk in the southern Baltic Sea, off the shores of Gdańsk Pomerania, Poland. It is separated from the open sea by the Hel Peninsula.[1]

The bay has an average depth of 2 m (7 ft) to 6 m (20 ft). There is a shallow sand-bank from Rewa to Kuźnica in the middle of Hel Peninsula. The bay, historically also known as the Bay of Putzig (German: Putziger Wiek; Kashubian: Pùckô Hôwinga), is available only for small fishing boats and yachts, which have to stick to the strict deeper routes. There are deposits of potassium salt below the Bay of Puck.

The main ports are Puck, Jastarnia, and Hel.
