SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Conditions are not great for Scuba Diving for the next few days especially from the exposed beaches and areas. High winds and big swells are creating unsuitable conditions for Scuba Diving in all regions covering Cardiff, Porthcawl, Swansea and to Stackpole Quay. The only possibility may be in the West of Wales which will have more offshore winds in certain areas. Visibility will be low due to the sea conditions so all round not looking as good as the previous settled weeks of diving.
