Scuba Diving Report for South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Porthcawl, Port talbot, Stcakpole Quay

Great diving conditions at the moment across the region, its definitely time to get your fins on and get in the water, the snorkelling is good as well, all sites are better on the incoming tide especially 3 hours after the low tide. Visibility is good and seas are calm and warmer.

We were diving at Sker point last week off Kenfig sands, a very hard dive and based on Scientific research for the local nature reserve, myself, Daniel Lewis and Stewart Brooke all completed the dive which is usually conducted by professional divers once every year.

As for our PADI Open Water Divers and PADI Advanced Open Water Divers the conditions are perfect to get with our guides and get in the water for some fantastic sea pleasure diving
