Scuba Diving near Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and across South and West Wales: The temperature is remaining at 8 degrees this week so diving at this time requires full thermal equipment. Dry suits are recommended to dive in currently as well as full hoods and gloves. The wind has picked up again to highs of 52mph and the swell is quite high reaching a predicted 13ft.

We are still running the PADI Open Water Qualification programme and will be using inland sites for the open water aspect of the examination, the theory and training will be conducted in a controlled pool environment. These areas will still be cold but will provide better visibility when diving. With the temperature starting to creep up it is the perfect time to learn to dive before the summer seasons. The PADI Open Water Qualification will allow you to dive anywhere in the world with a guide as it teaches you the fundamental skills required. This will allow you to make the most out of any trip abroad and see things that many people never see in their entire life.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Qualification programme is also available which will give you a more comprehensive knowledge of diving and will allow you to dive to grater depths. There is no theory or pool segment to this qualification, it is all done in the open water.
