Scuba Diving Report for South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Porthcawl, Port talbot, Stackpole Quay
Again the sea state is not great for Scuba Diving and snorkelling across South Wales and the Cardiff Swansea areas unless you are on very protected beaches from the big swells and surf. The protected sites will have calm conditions but strong under tows and surges with very limited visibility. Again probebly better to head inland or try the more protected beaches on the west Wales coastline.
We are signing off the PADI Open Water Scuba diving course completed on the weekend by students from Cardiff University. The course will allow them to dive anywhere in the world up to 18 meters. They are training to complete their work placement in L’Estartit Spain in the coming summer.
