SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS REPORT SOUTH WALES, CARDIFF, SWANSEA, PORTHCAWL, LLANLLEI, STACK POLE
Yet again this winter were not having the best conditions for sea based diving in the local areas around Cardiff, Ogmore, Porthcawl, Aberavon, Swansea, Llanllei and Stackpole quay. The seas are rough, the winds are high, the swell is huge, so there is no real safe possibility of scuba diving across the South Wales area. Again the best option will be to hed inland to the various controlled diving sites.
