Scuba Diving Wales, South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Carmarthenshire 15th October 2020 – The winds are offshore in most areas facing South and West and the swell in smaller for the next few days. These conditions should aid for better Scuba Diving conditions across the South Wales and West Wales areas. Most areas should have good exit and entrance conditions however the visibility will be very limited. The better conditions would be in West Wales as always in Martins Haven, St Brides Bay, Abereiddy and other protected areas on the West Wales coastline. 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.
