Scuba Diving near Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and across South and West Wales: The temperature has slightly increased in the sea this week going up by 1 degree to 9 degrees. This is till very cold however, so thick wetsuits e.g. 7mm(preferably dry suits), gloves and hoods are a necessity if diving in Wales this week. the wind is still very high reaching 45mph however the swell has reduced and after Friday will drop below 3ft.
This weekend we will be taking a group to an inland sight in order for them to complete they're PADI Open Water Qualification. The group have passed they're theory test and learnt he required skills to pass in the pool the previous weekend. The waters will be very cold so we will be equipping them with 7mm suits along with hoods and gloves.
We have some individuals on the Rescue course this week which teaches the skills required to help others and ones self when in trouble in a diving situation. This qualification gives a detailed understanding of what could go wrong and what to do in this situation which is an extremely useful skill to have. We recommend this course to all divers as it will make you much safer while diving.
