Conditions Report for Diving in South Wales 23.04.15

The wind conditions vary across the week but are generally between 10-20 mph in South Wales. Check magicseaweed for a comprehensive conditions breakdown on the day.

We are getting more and more students for the PADI Open Water qualification as it’s starting to get warmer and the perfect time to learn if you want to try something new during the summer. This short course allows someone to dive anywhere in the world although it is advised to always dive with a dive master. The course itself is split into a pool session, theory exam and an open water assessment.

There are also other qualifications to obtain following the Open water course. These include the Advanced Open Water qualification and the Rescue diver qualification. These qualifications expand on the Open Water course and cover areas more comprehensively. The advanced course teaches you how to better navigate and control buoyancy whereas the rescue course teaches individuals what to do should you find yourself in trouble. Both are very useful and worthwhile courses.
