Conditions Report for Scuba Diving in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

We've had some lovely weather across South Wales this week and this is good news for visibility. We are expecting conditions to become much tougher this weekend, particularly on the South Coast as swell and wind both pick up gradually across the weekend, Sunday afternoon will see 30+ knot gusts and 6ft - 9ft swell. If you can get down for Friday, you may find acceptable conditions across all of the dive sites, including Limeslade Bay or Oxwich Bay. The usual dive sites in West Wales will also be an option, such as Martins Haven and St Brides Bay, again particularly on Friday.

Whilst conditions may be acceptable early on Saturday morning, particularly further west, you may find the tides aren't going to play the game and with changeable conditions expected, you will be better heading to any of the inland dive sites in the South Wales area, such as Chepstow or Vobster Quay in Somerset.

Scuba Diving Training in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

We usually run our PADI Open Water Diver pool sessions on the first Saturday of each month, however there is a change of plan this month. A number of or instructors are out in L'Estartit, Spain on one of our infamous Dive Expeditions. This means our PADI Open Water Diver confined water sessions will be taking place next weekend, where we'll be starting the next batch of students on their underwater adventures.

CAUTIONS – It's summer and we've had some beautiful weather in South Wales sea temperatures will still only be around the 12 degree mark, so we'll need to take precautions with regards to thermal protection (wetsuits, drysuits, hoods, gloves).
