Scuba Diving Conditions and Activities Report for Cardiff, Swansea, South and West Wales - No No No No no!! There is definitely no way anyone can dive on the South Wales coastline including Swansea, Cardiff, South and up to West Wales for the next few days. The wind is howling, the rain is driving, the weather is cold, bad visibility and the Swell is huge, so conditions are particularly treacherous around the region for the next few days.
The coast would definitely be unsafe to dive on nearly all of the coastlines across the region, again you need to be looking inland and the dedicated Diver training and Scuba Diving open water pools. The water temperature is still quite high but the visibility will be down due to the rain fall.
We are still continuing with the PADI Open Water training course's including the PADI Open Water course, the Advanced Open Water Diver and the PADI Rescue Diver course including 1st Aid. The courses will be run for students across South Wales and into the UK starting as confined water swimming pool training. Inland and in the swimming pool are definitely the best conditions with the Sea state being so severe.
PADI Open Water Diver course will be held in Hebron Hall in Dinas Powys South Wales close to Cardiff, the course will firstly offer theory and education on the practice of Scuba Diving and practical swimming pool training with full Scuba equipment. We will also be running the PADI rescue diver course for students from Cardiff University training for their work placements in the Medess Islands Spain in summer 2016
