Scuba Diving Conditions Report South Wales, Cardiff CF1, Porthcawl Cf36, Aberavon SA12, Swansea, Llanelli, Stackpole Quay
Over the past few weeks the weather and the wind has been amazing, beautiful sunny days and light offshore winds, unfortunately all that has changed today. High winds and big swells have blown out the Scuba Diving sites in Cardiff, Swansea, Porthcawl, Aberavon and up to Stackpole Quay. Visibility will be minimal and surf conditions will make entrances and exits treacherous.
We have recently completed the PADI Open Water Diver course and the PADI Open Water Advanced Diver course with students from Cardiff University. The students are now ready for their placements in the Nature reserve in the Medes Islands in Spain, a project we established 5 years ago and still going strong. So good look to all the students as they continue their Scuba diving careers.
