Two big things we'll be contending with this weekend for Scuba Diving in South Wales; swell and visibility. The swell on Friday afternoon will be up around the 8ft mark and that continues into Saturday. As the swell dies down, the visibility will need a period of calm to settle down and improve.
Much the same as last week, the best bet is to head West to Pembrokshire to the North facing beaches and bays. Martins Haven and St Brides would be good areas to look at but there is a lot of adverse weather in the Atlantic at the moment and you could find visibility is poor there too. You could also head to an inland training site, such as Chepstow in South Wales or Vobster Quay in Sommerset.
We're in the pool in Hebron Hall, Cardiff this weekend for the first two parts of the PADI Open Water Diver course. The students will spend the morning in the pool, learning the practical skills required before learning the required theory in the afternoon. We're one of the only Scuba Diving Centres in the country to offer the PADI Open Water Diver referral in a single day plus some self study.
Next week we'll be taking the students to Chepstow to complete the open water part of the PADI Open Water Diver course and the following weekend we'll be back up at Chepstow running PADI Advanced Open Water course. As always, checkout our Facebook page for all the latest going ons.
