SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Weather is very bad across the South Wales region covering the scuba diving in Cardiff, Swansea, Llanelli, Burry Port, Carmarthen. Very high winds and Heavy rain are predicted over the next few days making the conditions for scuba diving very bad. Big swells and very stormy waters and conditions would make diving in the local area very volatile so our advise is to stay out of the water this weekend. Even Inland sites will be affected but may be the only option to dive this weekend.

PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver courses – Even with the bad weather we are still teaching people accross the country especially in South Wales. We are running the PADI Open Water Diver Course and the PADI Rescue diver course with students across South Wales.

SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Conditions are not great for Scuba Diving for the next few days especially from the exposed beaches and areas. High winds and big swells are creating unsuitable conditions for Scuba Diving in all regions covering Cardiff, Porthcawl, Swansea and to Stackpole Quay. The only possibility may be in the West of Wales which will have more offshore winds in certain areas. Visibility will be low due to the sea conditions so all round not looking as good as the previous settled weeks of diving.

PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver courses – The PADI certification system is the ticket into Scuba Diving anywhere in the world. Starting with the PADI Open Water Diver course allowing the diver to dive with a buddy up to 18 meters anywhere worldwide. We have recently completed the PADI Open Water Diver course with three students Rosalind, Matthew and Adam. They are now qualified to dive globally and hopefully progress the experience knowledge and understanding.

Local conditions and areas close to Cardiff and Swansea will be less favourable with limited visibility and hard entrance and exit conditions. Higher levels of qualifications and experience will be required to assess and deal with the conditions.

SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS REPORT FOR CARDIFF, SWANSEA, NEWPORT, SOUTH WALES AREA
Easterly winds for another week accross South Wales creating good clean entrance and exit points on Westerly facing beaches and good inshore conditions for diving. Possibly diving areas in Swansea, Llanelli and towards camarthenshire. The winds are cold so need to assess thermal protection, dry suits and training required through the PADI Dry Suit course. Also levels of experience are required preferably to a PADI Rescue diver or PADI Dive master. Visability is low due to the constant swell so more a training dive situation than one with great visability.

SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS REPORT FOR CARDIFF, SWANSEA, NEWPORT, SOUTH WALES AREA
There are big Easterly offshore winds this week which will mean the inshore dive sites should be protected from Wind and swell. This could allow good access into the waters around South Wales on the High Tides. The weekend early morning and on the early evening would have the best conditions on the High incoming tides and the protected areas. Visability will be questionable especially the further down the channel you go.
We have now completed several PADI Open water courses accross the country including London, Bolton, Cardiff, Stratford Upon Avon and Coventry. The students will all now be progressing towards completing the 4 Open Water Dives to complete the full PADI Open Water.
