Scuba Diving Cardiff, Swansea, South Wales, conditions report 26.02.2016 – The wind has dropped and the swell is down but unfortunately the visibility is poor around the South Wales coast including areas around Cardiff, Swansea, Burry Port and round to Tenby. The water temperature is high for the time of year at 8 – 10 degrees in places.
The best day for calm conditions will be Sunday with the swell and wind calming, the tides are high and must be used to there fullest extent. The high tide is 8am – 8.30pm therefore the best time to dive would be 7am onwards and possibly up to 10.30am on the dropping tides, after this time the rule of twelfths will come into play and the tide will run significantly faster after 10.30am.
The best areas will be Stakepole Quay in Tenby then towards the pembrokeshire coastline, with areas far more protected in these regions. Area close to Cardiff and Swansea will be Dive able but with limited visibility.
The inland areas have still got good visibility and water temperatures for the time of year, due to these facts we will be offering our PADI Open Water course training dives in the inland sites as well as the PADI Advanced Open Water Course and the PADI Rescue course.
Next week will see the start of our next PADI Open Water Diver course in Cardiff, for students from all over the South Wales region.
