SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Weather is very bad across the South Wales region covering the scuba diving in Cardiff, Swansea, Llanelli, Burry Port, Carmarthen. Very high winds and Heavy rain are predicted over the next few days making the conditions for scuba diving very bad. Big swells and very stormy waters and conditions would make diving in the local area very volatile so our advise is to stay out of the water this weekend. Even Inland sites will be affected but may be the only option to dive this weekend.
