Scuba Diving Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Conditions Report – 28.04.2016

Scuba Diving Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Conditions Report – 28.04.2016

Scuba Diving Conditions Report for Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

It's bank holiday weekend and typically South Wales has decided to throw a spanner in the works for diving. We're due some big swell over the weekend into Monday, possibly reaching 6ft - 9ft and on top of that the wind is set up be strong, gusting to gale force at times. This is going to lead to stormy sea conditions and virtually zero visibility - not the time to be diving here on the South Coast of Wales unfortunately.

Not all is lost however. You can always head to one of the inland sites we have in South Wales, such as Chepstow or  Vobster Quay in Somerset which should offer more shelter from the environmental conditions and better safety.

If you are on the coast and just want to get in the water, surfing could be an option with the big swell, but you still need to be wary of sea conditions, high winds and the tides.

Scuba Diving Training in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

A break in the scuba courses over the bank holiday weekend, but we'll be back at Hebron Hall in Cardiff next weekend, 7th May, running the PADI Open Water Diver Referral dives and theory sessions for our next group of students.

They'll be no break for our instructors though as they head off with our sister company, Quest Adventures, to do some further water safety training on the two of the Gorges in the Brecon Beacons

CAUTIONS – Water temperatures are still cold, about 10 degrees and you will also need to consider the wind chill whilst you are out of the water. Make sure you take precautions, particularly with the correct thermal protection for both in and out of  the water.
