There is a possibility of getting in the water over the next couple of days, the swell and winds are dropping around the coastlines of Cardiff, Swansea, Stackpole, Camarthen so exit and entrance may be plausible to scuba dive from safe sites. Visability however is low due to recent swells and high winds so again inland may be the better option for the hardy UK scuba diver.
