Scuba Diving in South Wales and Conditions Report

Home > News > News > Scuba Diving in South Wales and Conditions Report

The sun has been shining on us recently and the diving conditions have been great, light winds and rain throughout September and the water temperature 19 Degrees in the water. The diver training has also been flowing, this weekend we are in Hebron Hall on the outskirts of Cardiff training the PADI Open Water Diver Course and the PADI Rescue Open Water Diver Course. Students are with us from across South Wales including Cardiff, Newport, Bridgend and Swansea for the training session which starts at 8.45am on Saturday 04th October.

The students have also returned to University so they will be with us again to develope their skills for the diving careers and hopefully protect the wonderful sea’s and oceans of the world.


The conditions of late have been good, the light winds and steady tides have made for a settling of the sea’s and clearing visability and also temperatures of up to 19 Degree’s. This week is all change though the October winds are definately with us and we are predicting big swells and wind for both Saturday and Sunday, so our advice is to stay away from the coast along the South Wales area, this will also affect visability in the short term, we will keep you up to date.
