SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CAMARTHENSHIRE
The weather and the wind conditions look good at the moment for Westerly facing sites, the only issue may be the swell which is consistent 2 - 5 feet. The visibility will be minimal and inshore conditions not the best. May be accessible in some very protected areas such as Stackpole Quay in Camarthenshire. Local Cardiff and Swansea sites may have too much swell to work.

Students from accross South Wales will be heading to the confined Water training session to complete the PADI course.
