When people learn to Scuba Dive they usually dream of diving in exotic places such as Egypt, South Africa, The Maldives, The Caribbean and indonesia. Fortunately we have managed to Scuba Dive all these places across the world over the past 20 years, are they are truly amazing.

We are also blessed to live on the South Wales coast next to the Atlantic Ocean and we are lucky enough to be able to dive in the sea’s around wales as much as possible. The coast extends from Bristol, Newport, Cardiff, Bridgend, Swansea all the way to pembrokeshire. It has an abundance of Sea life including porpoise, seals, dolphins, sharks, fish, soft coral, crabs, shellfish in fact you name it and we have it in the sea’s around wales.

We dive in Swansea on a regular basis in places such as limeslade bay, langland bay and Oxwich, the scenery is amazing, yes it can be cold and sometimes not the best visability but sometimes it can be spectacular with an abunance of Marine life and crystal clear and on our door step.

Conditions can sometimes be challenging so we do advise that people extend their levels from the PADI Open Water Diver qualification to the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Qualification or the equivalent from another system. We always say Scuba Diving is Quite Simple and any one can partake within reason, but our sea’s are challenging and therefore we must train to be prepared to Dive in our beautiful sea’s.
