If you’re going to get a dive in this weekend then Sunday looks as if it will be your best bet, with the swell dropping down to 3ft – 5ft. With the larger swell in the previous days, you could find the visibility is affected but that doesn’t have to stop you from diving. You’ll need a good dive plan and make sure you are diving with somebody who knows the area well.
Water temperatures are still cold, so good thermal protection is vital for any dive, whether that’s inland or coastal; dry suits, hoods, gloves and think about your protection and clothing for after the dives too.
If you want a bit more certainty on the visibility side of things, you’ll want to head to one of the inland dive sites around South Wales, such as Vobster Quay – just over the border in Sommerset or Chepstow.
We’re back in Hebron Hall, Cardiff this weekend running our PADI Open Water Diver Referral course. We’ve got some students from Bishop of Llandaff school joining us too this weekend, so it’s going to be a good, full course. We always enjoy these courses and seeing our students go from having never taken a breath underwater to being ready for their open water dives is great.
Congratulations must also go to our students from Cardiff Uni who completed their PADI Rescue diver qualification recently. This is a really tough course that requires students to learn a number of new skills but it really does improve their abilities as a diver.
