Scuba Diving Report for South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Porthcawl, Port talbot, Stackpole Quay
Very poor conditions for scuba diving in the South Wales region this next week and following. There are high winds and very stormy sea’s with very limited visability. Even protected areas in West Wales will struggle for conditions with the stormy weather. Better to head inland to the protected sites and fresh water diving facilities. Weather is cold though so need full diving protection.
At present we are in the process of teaching the PADI Open Water Diver course, the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course and the PADI Rescue diver course. All courses will be running into the new year with practical and theoretical sessions running to develop the diving skills of our students.
