Grey Sea

The Grey Sea is a sub section of the Noran Sea located south of Salvatore and west of Allure. The average depth is 1,744 metres (5,722 ft) and maximum depth is 2,789 metres (9,150 ft).





Many species of whales and dolphins can be seen in this area but it is one of the few places where the beaked whales such as the Cuvier's beaked whale have been observed relatively frequently. This is the best study area for beaked whales in the world.

The best areas to see the larger cetaceans lie in the deep waters beyond the continental shelf, particularly over the Santander Canyon and Torrelavega Canyon in the south of the Bay.

Good numbers of several species of seabirds, particularly gannets.
