SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Volatile diving conditions again this week mainly due to the swell and the surf on the inshore areas, protected beaches may have a chance of entrance and exit as the swell and surf drop possibly later through the week and into next week. Seas are cold at the moment at 9 degrees and visibility minimal so may be better to head inland for the New Years Dive.
