Scuba Diving Conditions Report South Wales, Cardiff, Porthcawl, Aberavon, Swansea, Llanelli, Stackpole Quay
The conditions are not good again this week, the swell and surf are big throughout the week inshore creating poor and dangerous conditions. Diving in the areas around Cardiff and Swansea are very reliant on the tides, wind and subsequantly swell and they are definitely not suitable for diving this week.
We have a full PADI Scuba Diving programme on Saturday with the PADI Open Water Referral Scuba diving course in the swimming pool in Hebron Hall in Cardiff, we have students from Swansea and even Somerset as well. A busy programme with students completing the PADI Open water course and the PADI Discover Scuba.
