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

This biggest issue for diving in South Wales this weekend is, unsurprisingly, the temperature. Maximum temperatures across the weekend are set to be around 4° and sea temperature is likely to be under 10° too. So, if you are thinking of heading out for a dive, thermal protection is going to be absolutely vital as is a proper dive plan.

Swell is going to be a reasonable size along the South Wales coast, so is definitely something you'll need to factor in to your dive plan, entry and exit will need some real thought, however recent conditions have been settled and the tidal range is reasonably low (for the Bristol Channel) so you could have acceptable visibility along the coast this weekend. There will be some fairly strong winds this weekend, so if you are looking to dive on the coast, head for a sheltered bay and judge conditions all the time. Plan for the conditions before, during and after your dive.

As always, there is the option to head to one of South Wales' inland dive sites such as Chepstow or Vobster Quay (down the road in Sommerset). These sites give you much more certainty around environmental conditions, but at this time of the year temperature concerns cannot be escaped in the UK so inland diving will still require really good thermal protection.
