SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS REPORT FOR CARDIFF, SWANSEA, NEWPORT, SOUTH WALES AREA
There are big Easterly offshore winds this week which will mean the inshore dive sites should be protected from Wind and swell. This could allow good access into the waters around South Wales on the High Tides. The weekend early morning and on the early evening would have the best conditions on the High incoming tides and the protected areas. Visability will be questionable especially the further down the channel you go.
We have now completed several PADI Open water courses accross the country including London, Bolton, Cardiff, Stratford Upon Avon and Coventry. The students will all now be progressing towards completing the 4 Open Water Dives to complete the full PADI Open Water.
