Scuba Diving Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Conditions Report - 14.04.2016

Scuba Diving Conditions Report for Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

The weather isn't looking too bad for this weekend and the wind and swell has eased up, meaning the diving conditions could be acceptable in the regions of Swansea and South Wales over the next few days. Watch for poor visibility due to the sea movement and recent weather but the water course should be relatively safe and settled.

Areas of the Mumbles in Swansea, such as Oxwich Bay, or further west, such as Stackpole Quay will have some of the better conditions. Be aware of the large tidal movement however and always try to dive on an incoming tide.

If the poor visibility is a problem, there is always the option of heading to one of the inland sites here in South Wales, such as the National Diving & Activity Centre in Chepstow or Vobster Quay where visibility could be better.
