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

Generally Scuba Diving conditions in South Wales are pretty good this weekend, except for the obvious elephant in the room; the freezing temperatures. The sea is looking calm, with virtually no swell expected, wind is reasonably strong but in an Easterly direction so you will be afforded some protection for the South Wales landscape and we have had a good few days of settled conditions, so you should even get acceptable visibility.

All that being said, it is cold, really, really cold. So, if you are going to venture out of a Scuba Diving trip you will need to ensure all of your equipment is in perfect condition, be extra cautious in any dive as the cold can affect your air consumption and nitrogen absorption and ensure you have access to back up equipment, which you should anyway diving with a buddy. Thermal protection is absolutely vital; hoods, gloves, dry suits and lots of layers underneath are all going to be required. You also need to think about your thermal protection for before and after the dive.

Whether you dive the South Wales coast or choose to dive an inland site, you are all going to be coming up against the same challenge, temperature, so plan properly and most of all, stay safe
