Scuba Diving Wales, South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Carmarthenshire 18th September 2020 – Turbulent days ahead for Scuba Diving in the South wales region with high winds and bigger swells forecast. The winds are mainly offshore so inshore conditions should not be too bad but there is an inshore swell. The better days will be the days with offshore Easterly winds and smaller swells. As the winds turn Westerly all inshore beaches and dive sites in the region will get blown out. The better areas on the coast will be on the Pembrokeshire side with Martins Haven, St Brides, Abercastle getting the better conditions. The government has move released the lockdown measures and is allowing travel and diving within specific groups.
