The Sæl was a 109t Norwegian MTB built in 1901. She measured 40 metres in length and was powered by triple expansion engines. In April 1940 she was hit by gunfire and damaged during an engagement with German warships. Whilst withdrawing from the action she went aground and sank a few hours later.
After the war the Norwegian navy used explosives to remove unexploded ordnance from the Sæl. As a result the midships section of the wreck has been destroyed. However, divers report that parts of the bow and stern sections remain standing.
