SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Weather conditions again are turbulent through the week with strong winds, big swells and heavy rain. Diving conditions are looking unsuitable on the local insure areas for the next few weeks with stormy inshore entry and exit areas along the coastline. The main area to dive may be in West Wales when the winds are Southerly in Martins Haven and St Brides areas of the coast. Inshore diving sites should be the better option with the conditions severe on the coastline.
