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.
