The sea watch was a naval unit active during the reign of House Targaryen, and they presumably patrolled Blackwater Bay and Dragonstone.[1] It is unknown if the sea watch still exists during the reign of House Baratheon.


Ser Tristimun, the commander of the sea watch during the reign of King Aerys II Targaryen, was merciless towards smugglers.[1]


As he listened to the pounding of the oarmaster's drum, the thrum of the sail, and the rhythmic swish and creak of the oars, he thought back to his younger days, when these same sounds woke dread in his heart on many a misty morn. They heralded the approach of old Ser Tristimun's sea watch, and the sea watch was death to smugglers when Aerys Targaryen sat the Iron Throne.[1]
