Massive Swell, bigger winds, this weekend is not the weekend for Scuba Diving on the South Wales coast. Don’t get too upset though. Those of us not lucky enough to be able to hop on a plane and head out to some warmer climates for some Scuba Diving, which let’s be honest is probably most of us, can always head to one of the inland dive sites in our around South Wales.
Chepstow and Vobster Quay are both options this weekend, you just need to be aware of the water temperatures and plan your dive and equipment accordingly. With the strong winds and rain that are forecast you’ll also need to think about your clothing before and after the dive so you don’t get too cold out of the water either.
This weekend sees us heading outside of South Wales to run the PADI Open Water Diver Referral course for a school who are putting on a diving trip for some of their students. These are always fun and challenging courses and our instructors and divemasters always enjoys themselves.
Later on in the week we’re completing the PADI Rescue diver course with some students from Cardiff University. We partner with the Marine Biology dept and Cardiff Uni and work with the students on the skills they require for their research projects.
Our PADI Open Water Diver courses and PADI Advanced Open Water courses are starting to fill up as people prepare for their upcoming holidays but we’ve still got space throughout the Spring and Summer, so if diving is something you’ve thought about, give us a call and we can talk you through the process and get you booked up.
