SCUBA DIVING CONDITIONS REPORT SOUTH WALES, CARDIFF, SWANSEA, PORTHCAWL, LLANLLEI, STACK POLE 

We still have high winds and huge swells across the South Wales region including Newport, Cardiff, Porthcawl, Swansea, Llanllei, Stackpole, so no diving over the next two days, Sunday, Monday and calming down, so could be accessible at the early part of the week, the problem will be the visability which would be down to zero or 1 meter.

2018 has started already for our diving season, we are running the PADI Open Water Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Divemaster programmes at the moment and heading back into the water over the next couple of weekends, so hopefully the wind will drop and the Sea’s calm so we can get some quality Scuba Diving.
