Summer is on its way out and the Autumn is coming in, this means a change in conditions through the South Wales region. Water temperature will be high into October but at present there are high winds and swells forecast which will affect the conditions especially the visibility.
We have had a prolonged period of good conditions but that is now behind us, hopefully we can get a period of no swell and light winds to enhance the diving conditions.
Currently we are running the PADI Open Water Diver course for people across South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and across the region. We are also in the process of delivering the PADI Rescue diver course.
