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

This weekend sees us expecting some fairly big swell, but more troublesome will be the strong winds, with gusts up to 30 knots in a North Westerly direction. This could make entry and exit difficult, particularly for shore dives and could also make visibility an issue. Add the massive tides we're expecting over the weekend (over 10m at high tide) and a coastal dive is pretty much out of the question on the South Wales coast this weekend.

All is not lost though. You may be able to take advantage of the milder winter we've been having this year and head to one of the inland sites here in South Wales. If you do head out for a dive in an inland site, you will need very good thermal protection, such as Dry Suit, thick undersuit, hood, gloves, etc as water temperatures will be low, around 9 degrees.

Your last option is to book a short notice trip and head to warmer climates, much like we're enjoying currently on our Dive Trip to South Africa for some water time with the sharks; Hammerheads, Bull Sharks and lots more!

Scuba Diving Training in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

As we said above, we're still enjoying our Dive Trip to South Africa with our instructors and some of our students, so there's no training planned this week. We'll be back soon with the PADI Open Water course starting back up on the first Saturday of February. We'll also be looking to run the PADI Advanced Open Water and PADI Rescue Diver courses early on in the year, so if you want to take the next step in your diving adventure, then get in touch.
