Conditions and Events Report for Scuba Diving in South and West Wales near Cardiff, Swansea, Lydstep and Pembrokshire - well summers hear and the conditions are terrible for diving in the South Wales region, high winds, bad weather, storms, heavy rain and Big sea swells and again hindering the coastal areas in the region for Scuba Diving. Sites near Cardiff and Swansea are definitely a no go with bad visibility and poor conditions.
If there was anywhere to dive this coming week it would be West Wales in protected areas such as Martins Haven and St Brides Bay by Dale and haverfordwest. These sites would be better dived on the late afternoon incoming tides and when the bays are in full flood to protect from the adverse conditions.
Divers should to qualified to the PADI Advanced or PADI Rescue Diver level or the similar level in other licences for this weeks diving profile. We are running the PADI Open Water Diver Course at Hebron Hall in Dinas Powys on 6th June. The Open Water Dives will then be run in July for the full qualification.
