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

The swell returns to the South Wales coast this weekend, reaching up to 7ft potentially on Sunday. Wind is generally fairly gentle although you could experience some gusts up to 13knots - 15knots and will be a moving between a Southerly and West South West over the course of the weekend. The conditions are relatively calm in the lead up to the weekend, so if you can plan your dive around the swell you could find some acceptable diving conditions along parts of the South Wales coast, particularly in more sheltered bays, such as Caswell Bay or Oxwich Bay in Swansea.

Thermal protection is still vital, even if the weather is particularly mild for this time of year, it will have made very little difference to water temperatures, so you'll need decent thermal protection for any dive, dry suits, hoods, gloves will all be required. The correct, properly serviced equipment is always vital so, if you're thinking of heading out with your lightweight travel BCD and regulator, think again! Perhaps sign yourself up to the PADI Advanced Open Water or PADI Rescue Diver course so you can understand why you shouldn't be doing that.
