Scuba Diving in the South Wales area over the next few days will be variable, we have just returned from a trip of a lifetime from the Caribbean where the water temperature was 29 degrees and back home at the moment it is 7 degrees which I must say quite cold even for a hardened divers like us.
So be prepared to wrap up warm, Dry Suit or good semi dry suit, gloves, hood, thermal rash vests, boots and a flask of hot coffee. The wind is high on the weekend so this will add to the cold factor.
The best areas for the conditions will be West Wales around the Skomer Island area with the winds and swell being less and the conditions clearing quicker for more suitable diving conditions.
We were instructing the PADI Open Water Diver Course in Hebron Hall in Cardiff on the weekend with a group of 18 students from all over South Wales including Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and Bridgend.
They will be looking to complete their 4 PADI Open Water Dives in the near future, were going to let the water warm up for them a little first.
