Scuba Diving Conditions and Activities Report for Cardiff, Swansea, South and West Wales – Well its been more of the same really, high winds, big swells, terrential rains, mild weather it really has been a strange one this year in total. The coast has been affected the worse with the shore lines being battered by high seas and storms making the diving very volatile. There has hardly been a break in the conditions, therefore the visibility has been bad as well as the state of the seas. South Wales has really been affected around the Cardiff and Swansea areas, with little to no diving available at this time of year
As always West Wales has been more protected from these conditions but still has been affected areas such as St Brides Bay, Abercastle, Martins Haven have all been the best options as they are North facing and far more protected than the exposed coastlines of South wales. I would say the best option over the next few days is to go for a run and work off that Christmas Excess ready for the new diving season, or stay in the pub and talk about tales of diving on the high seas of the UK.
We are back in the water instructing the PADI Open Water Diver course for students in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and accross South Wales on the 6th February at Hebron Hall Christian Centre in Dinas Powys close to Cardiff City Centre.
