SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE - There should be good access to certain dive sites this week depending on the wind direction as there are strong Easterly winds today and strong winds tomorrow. The weather is good and the swell is small tomorrow so may get better scuba diving conditions on Saturday. As the swell and the wind pick up conditions will change making harder diving conditions. As always diving will be better on the incoming tides in most areas.
PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver courses - The better level of diver is the rescue diver qualification for the dives in the UK. With big tides, strong currents, surf, swells and limited visibility at times, then the more competent diver the safer diver with these conditions. We are running all courses in the PADI System for all levels of divers to gain competency and ability to dive off the shores of the UK and the Welsh coastline.
