Scuba Diving Conditions Report South Wales, Cardiff, Porthcawl, Aberavon, Swansea, Llanelli, Stackpole Quay
Well the conditions were bad last week but they have got even worse if that could be possible, gale force winds, 3-4 feet of snow, blizzards, ice you name it we have it across Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Llanelli, Stackpole we cant even get to the inland dive sites. So diving is definitely OFF everywhere accept for Egypt, South Africa, Caribbean etc.
We are still running the PADI diving programmes including the PADI Open Water Diver course, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and the PADI Divemaster course, theory based at the moment and then in the pool as soon as the conditions clear to get on to site.
We are also in the planning stages for South Africa and Spain trips, they will be running in August for Spain and January 2019 for South Africa so we shall keep you informed.
