Scuba Diving Wales, South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Carmarthenshire 16th April 2020- Another week with offshore Easterly winds, dry weather and inshore calm conditions. Should be good inshore diving conditions through the next few days, low swell, offshore breezes, good entrance and exit conditions. There has also been a good few days of light offshore winds and low swells so visibility could be good through out the area. The difficulty will be down to accessing the sites due to the government lockdown and banning of non-essential travel through the country.
