SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS REPORT FOR CARDIFF, SWANSEA, NEWPORT, SOUTH WALES AREA
The weather has been very cold over the past few days and the water temperature in the Sea down to 9 degrees and inland down to 5 degrees, this will be the coldest time to dive, so the right equipment is essential.
Sea conditions are not good in the area for diving with stormy seas, big swells and surf and very limited visability. The better conditions will definitely be inland.
We are running the PADI Open Water diver training course, The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver  course and the PADI Rescue Diver course over the next few weeks with our pool session on 02nd March 2019.
