SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE - Again not great conditions for Scuba Diving across the South Wales region, there has been huge surg and swells for the past few days affecting all inshore sites. The swell is dropping off next week but the visibility will be not very good to say the least. Looking for calmer days in August through to September to clear the water and get good diving conditions. West Wales as always will be the better option for diving this week and beyond.
