There has been a constant swell all week around the coastline of Wales, this will affect the visability of all diving locations. This week the swell is lower up until Wednesday when the wind and the swell is picking up significantly. Entrance and exit points are acceptable on the sheltered beaches such as Limeslade bay in Swansea up until the wind and swell increase by the middle of the week, so best conditions are the weekend and the beginning of the week. We have our comprehensive PADI Open Water Course systems running and the pool session is being held in Hebron Hall in Dinas Powys. The next pool session for the course is to be held on 11th May 2019.
