SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE - Possibly good conditions this week for Scuba Diving in South Wales. Low winds. low swells, low surf , good temperatures both land and Sea. This should be the best week for diving conditions for the last few weeks. Diving will be better on the incoming and high tides especially with the settled conditions. The further to the West will get the better visibility with Stackpole Quay having the better conditions. Water Temperatures are up to 16 degrees so all round good conditions.
PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver courses - Good diving conditions will draw diers into the water over the next few days. the PADI Open Water Diver qualification would be the entry level to be able to dive and the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver would be great to be guided in the Open Water. The better levels would be the PADI Rescue Diver and up to the PADI Divemaster especially where the visibility will be less towards South Wales close to Cardiff and Swansea.
