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


The sea is relatively calm over the weekend, with around a 3ft swell expected along the South Wales coast. The bigger issue is the previous days swell and the wind picking up and the effect that is going to have on the visibility for any dive along Wales’ South coast. If you head to some of the more sheltered bays early on Saturday then the wind may still be gentle enough however it is due to start picking up from Saturday lunch time so from Saturday afternoon onwards the visibility is going to be blown out of the water.

You can always head to an inland dive site where the weather has less effect on the visibility. Chepstow and Vobster Quay are both options for the weekend and you’ll be almost guaranteed a dive at those sites.

PADI Scuba Diving Training and Courses in Cardiff, Swansea and across South Wales


We’ll be down at Chepstow this weekend running the PADI Advanced Open Water course. This involves 5 guided dives over the 2 days and allows the students to really focus on improving their general diving skills in a controlled environment with support from our instructors.

We’ve also got a charity pool diving session coming up soon, so check back or follow us on Facebook for more information on that. It will be running in early December and we’ll be announcing the charity we’re supporting soon. Let us know if you’d be interested in attending, it would be great to see you there!
