Scuba Diving Conditions Report South Wales, Cardiff, Porthcawl, Aberavon, Swansea, Llanelli, Stackpole Quay

As you may have gathered the winter season does not provide the best conditions for scuba diving in the South Wales region especially around Newport, Cardiff, Swansea and Tenby areas, the winds are high, gusty and variable, swells and surf are consistantly bigger, weather is colder and visibility hard to come by. This week is no exception the swell is high, the winds are big, the visibility is low and big tides.

However there is always the back up of the inland sites to dive in and also trips abroad especially winter destinations such as Egypt, South Africa, Caribbean. As always we are training people through the PADI system for there PADI Open Water Diver Course, the PADI Open Water Referral diver course and all other courses in the system. Ten students have just been trained up to the Referral system and preparing for their Open Water qualifying dives.
