Cardiff, Swansea and Newport Scuba Diving Conditions Report

Home > News > News > Cardiff, Swansea and Newport Scuba Diving Conditions Report

Scuba Diving near Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and accross South and West Wales is looking a little better his week, the wind is lighter but the swell is still quite high. The temperature of the sea is still cold 8 degrees so full coverage is required if not preferably Dry Suits and full Hoods and Gloves.

West Wales again is looking the better option with the protected beaches looking better than the rest, Martins Haven and St Brides being the beaches of choice. The tides are in the mornings so the better conditions will be on the incoming tide especially in these bay areas.

South Wales sites are looking to hard to dive with limited visibility, but inland sites will be working well especially the The Dive Activity Centre, Lobster Quay and Cromhall(if open). With the wind lighter and swell reducing there may be a chance to dive in Limeslade Bay in Swansea, this is a big maybe, need to check the sight before diving.

The season is starting, the nights getting longer and hopefully the weather and the water temperature getting warmer. So watch this space and get qualified to dive, get in the water and let the beautiful seas around Wales change your life.
