Scuba Diving on the Gower in Swansea South Wales

Scuba Diving on the Gower in Swansea South Wales

The sun is out and the sky is blue, the water is still a little chilly but the Scuba Diving is wonderful no matter what the conditions are, we have been back on the coast and our training sites over the last few days. The instructional team at Ocean Quest are avid divers and love what they do, so as soon as the conditions allow they are in the water, even if the conditions don't allow there in the water.

Recently we have been diving in the Gower in Swansea where the marine life and the flora and fauna is in abundance, the first site we have been surveying is Lime Slade Bay in Gower in Swansea Bay. The visabilty was not great but the marine life is abundant, pollack, bass, spider crabs, wrasse to name a few marine species. This is one of the sites we use to take people on the PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Course and the PADI Advanced Scuba Diver course.

We are blessed here in South Wales with some amazing dive sites in the Lime Slade Bay, Oxwich Bay, Port Eynon and then further up the coast of Wales into Pembrokeshire and especially the marine nature reserve of Skomer island.

We instruct people through the PADI Open Water System to be able to Dive in the beautiful areas and even to instruct and make this wonderful skill part of there career.
