Scuba Diving Report for South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Porthcawl, Port talbot, Stackpole Quay

Great sea conditions this week but thanks to storm Callum and big swell, entries and exits will be a challenge. Along with poor visibility dive conditions this week are poor. Therefore if you head to West Wales you might be in for a better chance. If not you could always head inland where you are almost guaranteed a dive.

October 27th/28th we are running the PADI Open Water Diver and Rescue Diver courses. Our next PADI Open Water Diver pool sessions to accompany the four open water dives will be held the first weekend of November att Hebron Hall in Dinas Powys in Cardiff, there are students from all over South Wales including Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Bridgend and Porthcawl.
