There is definately NO DIVING accross the South Wales area for the next few days, the swell and the wind is huge and no visibility so all around bad for any Scuba Diving in areas around Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Camarthenshire etc. The best option would be to head inland to the protected sites across the region.
This weekend we have Luke, Keiron, Nathaniel and Harri completing the PADI Junior Open Water Diver qualification. We shall be heading inland with the lads to complete the course on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully the wind and the rain will hold off for the lads to get through and start their diving future.
