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

The Weather has stayed constantly dry for weeks now and the wind quite low, only gusting up to 20 mph on occasions, there is a possibility of rain and wind through the region. There has also been a few days of swell affecting the visibility on the South Wales coastline.

Generally conditions are pretty good still with clear areas from Swansea to West Wales, really need to work with the tides especially in certain bays in Swansea and the South Wales region.

We have our usual full programme of PADI Open Water Diver courses available and PADI courses from Open Water Diver to Divemaster.
