All the latest news, conditions reports and articles for Scuba Diving across South Wales and internationally.

Scuba Diving Conditions for Cardiff, Swansea, South Wales and West Wales areas . Well all I can say is that it hasn’t really been the best year for wether and subsequently Scuba Diving on the Coastline of South Wales. We have had alot of rain and  wind and swell throughout the summer and the temperature has been cold through out and it hasn’t changed this week either. Ther is still rain and wind and the conditions are not great from Cardiff up to Stackpole Quay in Pembrokshire. The best options again will be on the West Wales coastline in pembrokeshire especially Martins Haven and St Brides Bay. They are protected from the wind and swell so get better conditions throughout the year. Hopefully September and October will start to bring lighter conditions so we can get back in the water when the temperture is still comfortable.

We are stiil trining through out the season and through out the year with people atttending our Scuba Diving Courses fron Cardiff, Swansea, Bridgend, Newport and through out South Wales. This weekend we are teaching the PADI Open Water Diver Course and the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. On the course are David, Stuart, Grace and Sally on the PADI Open Water Diver and Stuart, Jacob and Luke and the PADI Advanced Course. They will be completeing the course over the weekend with their instructors Dan, Paul, Chris and Jo. So good luck to all of them


Scuba Diving Conditions in Cardiff, Swansea, South Wales and West Wales for the up coming week as usual is looking varied across the region. The exposed tidal areas of Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales are not looking good at all. We have big winds and bigger Swell conditions to cope with and this is affecting the Scuba Diving conditions badly. The visibility is minimal and the undertows, rip currents and inshore currents will be very unpredictable for the next few days. All divers with the basic qualifications such as PADI Open Water Diver, BSAC Ocean Diver should not be in the water in these areas unless under supervision by and experienced qualified diver. PADI Rescue Diver and BSAC Sports Diver would be better suited to the conditions in the area at the moment.

The best option for diving over the next few days would be West Wales in the protected areas of Martins Haven, St Brides Bay in Pembrokeshire. They are far better protected from the wind and the swell conditions and will offer by far the safest and clearest conditions for all qualified divers.

We are teaching the PADI Open water Diver Course at the moment in Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales areas, the course will allow a diver to certify to be able to dive up to 18 meters anywhere in the world, our advice is always for the newly qualified diver to be under supervision so they be protected whilst learning the basics of there new diving experience.
