Angela about us pageAngela Phillips

PADI Instructor M.S.D.T

Angela learnt to dive in the balmy waters of Stoney Cove in 2001, and continued to do all of her training in the UK, with her PADI Instructor course back at Stoney Cove in 2008.

She is now one of our two PADI Freediving Instructors at the centre, developing our training abilities whenever she can.

She has been diving in a few far flung places, such as Australia, Socorro and the Maldives, but is pretty happy playing with the Seals off of our own UK coastline.

You will usually find her developing new wrinkles in the pool or behind her Mac sorting out the website.



Jen about us pageJen Elfverson

PADI Assistant Instructor

Jen is our resident Aussie who has has been diving since the age of 15. Training just outside of Sydney with her Dad, she soon realised being a mermaid was amazing and was completely hooked.

Having been fortunate enough to travel a lot for work, Jen has managed to dive all over the globe in all types of waters including the Galapagos, Easter Island, The Cenotes and of course the Great Barrier Reef.

She first started training with Ocean View to do her Rescue diver in 2009 with Graeme, and has been a part of the team since 2013 when she gave up her career of 20 years and decide splashing about in the water was much more fun.

For most of the time you will see Jen in the pool helping all types of people of all ages to discover how cool it is to breathe underwater, or she will be running about the shop.
