A smuggler is a naval tradesman that carries out illegal trade, often dealing stolen goods, or evading customs, tax officers, or naval blockades. Some smugglers also engage in piracy.


Smugglers often employ black sails and muffled oars.[1]


The Night's Watch fleet at Eastwatch-by-the-sea arrests and executes smugglers that sell weaponry to the Free Folk.[1][2]

Known smugglers


A smuggler had best know men as well as tides, or he would not live to smuggle long.[1]

A certain Lysene pirate once told me that a good smuggler stays out of sight. Black sails, muffled oars, and a crew that knows how to hold their tongues.[1]
