The wind and subsequent swell have been large and consistent over the past few days and predicted for the next few days, the wind has been blowing strong and blustery again over the past few days and in all directions. This has made conditions unsuitable for diving across the region, even the usually protected beaches North facing in West Wales have seen strong Northerly winds. The best option is to head inland to the local dive training facilities, the water is getting colder so remember to wrap up extra warm.
We are still training the PADI Diver educational system throughout the winter ready for those holidays and the new season in 2018. Students are undertaking the PADI Open Water Diver, the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and the PADI Rescue diver at the moment
