Scuba Diving Wales, South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Carmarthenshire 08th October 2020 – The scuba diving on the South wales coast at the moment is not looking good at all. There are high winds and big swells throughout the region affecting the diving across the area. There will be unsafe water entry and exit conditions due to the wind and swell and poor visibility, definitely worth sitting out for the next few days and waiting for the wind and swell to drop and the conditions to clear. Areas in the Cardiff, Swansea, Carmarthen. Newport, West Wales are all unsuitable due to the winds varying directions and strengths for the next few days.. The government lockdown policies are now changing daily and there are new restrictions on several sites, please follow the government legislation and restrictions for the day.
