in South Wales has many diving centers that deliver diving education
at all levels as well as dive travel. Glamorgan diving centers
are equipped to give advanced levels of training including courses
for instructors and technical diving.
Always dive according to your level of training.
Never enter the water without checking with the local dive center
for safety, additional information, level required for each dive
site and without being accompanied by a professional. All the
information provided is purely informative for our readers and
shouldn't be used as is to plan your immersion.
Glamorgan's diving schools make regular outings
to other parts of Wales. Pembrokeshire in West Wales has a nice
coastline and great cliffs. The marine life is abundant and varied
and there are numerous wrecks. This gives a diversity
that can cater for all levels of divers and tastes.
Skomer Island is well known for the encounters
with dolphins and grey seals. The reefs
and pinnacles are colourful and you can see gold and scarlet star
coral and devonshire cup corals which are indeed very rare.
In Chepstow the Landrover Lagoon is an excellent
dive site. It is well built to accomodate novices, intermediate
amd advanced divers. There are training platforms at 6, 7 and
8 metres (20, 23 and 26 feet), ideal for novices. The depths of
the lagoon goes from 6 metres to 75 metres (20-246 feet). There
are several very interesting attractions that have been sunk which
include a troop carrier, a Wessex helicopter Mk3, a motor bike,
a Devon aircraft and a North Sea diving bell just to name a few.
This is definitely an interesting dive for divers of all levels
There's a wreck in Swansea, Gower Peninsula called the
Oxwich. This vessel went down during World War 2 after
hitting a mine. The wreck is very broken up but you can still
recognise the structure. This is a deep wreck and is best
dived at high water. However it's strongly recommended
for very experienced and advanced divers only. There's plenty
of marine life living around this wreck and you can see lots of
conger so do not forget your camera! There's
a car park and the launching is done from Oxwich beach, quite
close to the wreck. If you get hungry, theres a kiosk
that sells hot meals.
