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

There is definately NO DIVING accross the South Wales area for the next few days, the swell and the wind is huge and no visibility so all around bad for any Scuba Diving in areas around Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Camarthenshire etc. The best option would be to head inland to the protected sites across the region.

This weekend we have Luke, Keiron, Nathaniel and Harri completing the PADI Junior Open Water Diver qualification. We shall be heading inland with the lads to complete the course on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully the wind and the rain will hold off for the lads to get through and start their diving future.

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
