Scuba Diving Conditions in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales - 30.06.2017

Conditions Report for Scuba Diving in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

The weather  is a little dull here in South Wales across this weekend but we could still see some acceptable conditions for diving along the coast, particularly in the more sheltered areas. The swell is relatively low, at around 2ft - 4ft and on Sunday in particular the wind is set to drop, with a few strong gusts. We're on a neap tide along the South Wales coast, so high tide is a relatively low (for the Bristol Channel), 8.5m. This could effect your usual dive plans, so make sure you review and re-plan where required.

We've had relatively calm waters across the week and the wind has been quite gentle too which means you should have acceptable visibility for an enjoyable dive, particularly in areas with more shelter from the wind.

As always there is the option of the inland dive sites, which will always offer more settled conditions - particularly useful if you are training or doing your first dive in a little while to get back into things. Obviously, if it's been longer than 6 months we recommend you have a refresher course before doing any diving.

Scuba Diving Training in Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

We're really busy this weekend! We've got our usual session running at Hebron Hall in Cardiff, where a number of students will be completing their PADI Open Water Referral course. This is the first part of the full PADI Open Water Diver course and we're one of the few places in South Wales that enable you to complete this with home study and a single days instructor led training.

On top of that, we're also running the PADI Open Water Referral course across the Saturday and Sunday for pupils at Alleyen's School in Dulwich. Again we are one of the few companies that can organise these course at your location, reducing costs of travelling and the difficulty in arranging the trip. If this is something you think could benefit your school, company or club, give Lee a call and he can run through all of the different options available.
