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

A real mixed bag of weather across South Wales this week. We've had calm sunny days, heavy rain and strong winds all making for some challenging Scuba Diving conditions this weekend.

Much of the South Coast of Wales will likely see some fairly large swell and Westerlies and Southerlies that could become quite strong, so the South Wales dive sites,including Limeslade Bay and Oxwich Bay, are almost certainly going to become inaccessible for diving. With all of the water movement these conditions will create, visibility is also going to become an issue too.

All is not lost however. We're blessed with some of the best inland dive sites in the UK here in South Wales and close by so if you want to be sure of getting your dives in the best bet is to to head to one of those.

If you just want to get out and into the water, why not try something new? Our sister company, Quest Adventures, can offer you surf board hire and surfing lessons (may as well take advantage of that swell) as well as Gorge Walking or Canyoning in the Brecon Beacons.

Scuba Diving Training in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

We're back at Hebron Hall in Cardiff this weekend with a nice mixture of PADI Open Water Diver students, PADI Refresher sessions, for qualified divers who haven't dived for a while to bring them back up to speed with their skills and a couple of Scuba Diving Taster Sessions.

The PADI Open Water Diver Open Water dives are being planned for the end of this month and once our students have successfully completed that part of the course they'll be qualified to scuba dive anywhere in the world up to 18m and begin their underwater adventures.

CAUTIONS – Water temperatures are still mild for the UK, although they'll be starting to fall from here. You'll still need to take all precautions with regards to thermal protection (wetsuits, drysuits, hoods, gloves) as even the warmest UK sea temperatures are around the 12°C mark. Swell is going to be a problem across South Wales this weekend
