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

Scuba Diving in South Wales is off this weekend unless you are heading to an inland site. We're expecting huge swell (possibly reaching 10ft+), making any entry / exit very difficult and visibility will be effected too. Although wind strength will be reasonably gentle with the size of the swell and temperatures our advice is stay out of the sea.

Temperatures are higher here in South Wales than they have been over the last couple of weeks, so if you have the correct thermal protection you can always head to one of the inland sites in the area. Although temperatures are higher, they are still cold so, dry suits, hoods, gloves are all required as well as warm, layered clothes for before and after the dives.

Scuba Diving Training in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

Last weekend saw our Christmas Jumper charity dives in Cardiff, which was great fun! We introduced a number of young children to the delights of Scuba Diving and raised some money for Save the Children too. We though that was our last diving event of the year, but it looks like we've go one more day of introducing people to Scuba Diving as we look to run a private taster session for the residents of a lakeside estate.

After that, it's fully focused on our Dive Trip to South Africa. Our instructors and some previous students will be heading at to a number of locations all gearing up for the pinnacle; diving with sharks in their natural habitat.

Courses will be back up an running in February, so if you're thinking of starting or continuing you diving adventures, book your PADI Advanced Open WaterPADI Advanced Open Water or PADI Rescue Diver with us today


CAUTIONS – Temperature! Thermal protection is absolutely vital, proper dive planning is critical and properly maintained equipment key. With swell size, you need to really think about how you can enter and exit the water safely and weather you'll have the required visibility. Stay warm and stay safe!
