SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – The wind and the swell has increase this week and inshore sea conditions will be affected. With the bigger swells and choppier seas the diving conditions will not be as good as last week. Protected areas will be better such as Stackpole Quay near Tenby. Local conditions and areas close to Cardiff and Swansea will be less favourable with limited visibility and hard entrance and exit conditions. Higher levels of qualifications and experience will be required to assess and deal with the conditions.
