Diving in Wales - Best Season

The summer months are suitable for diving in Pembrokeshire. This spot offers clear visibility and seals and a lot of fish such as butterfish, wrasse, and mackerel. For beginners, it is the best destination. The waters of West Wales offer the opportunity to see brittle star beds, lobsters, scallops, and octopi. For underwater wreck fans, Anglesey is the ideal place. Here you can find more than 400 shipwrecked treasures, seals that come close to divers, and various species of fish. Annually in August ScubaFest takes place in Anglesey.
