It was so-so good! Renata who coordinated our dives is so kind! She showed us really beautiful places. She is very good in her English and she is very patient - that is important for the newbies in diving :) Amazing places, amazing fishes, amazing small talks. Thank you!!

What an incredible week we have had! So impressed with Black Rock Dive Centre. Our transfers, fantastic quality accommodation (I strongly recommend the Sunset Apartment with it's beautiful roof terrace) and perfectly tailored dive package were all arranged so smoothly by Renate and her team. We were made to feel completely at home. They could not improve on the quality... More

I have been diving with Black Rock since 2008. I have only ever had a great holiday. Absolutely no exception this time. In large part this is down to the excellent staff. Renate is still managing the dive center with all her usual care and attention. As a photographer the service I have received is second to none. First and... More

Not my first time diving with Black Rock, but like every time before they look after you like you're one of the family. Totally professional, nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to ensure that you get the dives that you want. The staff are first class as is the service they provide. They can...

Spent one week prior to Xmas for our 35th wedding aniversary with Black Rock. Came in 2013 and was very impressed. Renate did not disappoint. She arranged accommodation, pick ups and of course a first rate 5 day dive package. Only hired cylinders and weights as we brought are own gear. Does not matter how many dives you have under...

I spent a week diving with Black Rock in August 2014, to do my 50-th dive there as well. And as time goes, I keep remembering this week that left lots of lasting good memories. We dived with Renate, who is a German engineering manager who eventually downshifted to run a diving center. She is an intelligent person who has... More

I had a great time diving with Black Rock over a period of three days in late October. The guide Mamduh was excellent and very well-informed about local conditions. He and Renate inspired a lot of confidence, which I appreciated as a novice diver. They also booked my hotel, arranged transportation and provided quality equipment. I would definitely go back.

This is my 4th time returning to Dahab and I'm never disappointed. The centre has had a freshen up so everything feels cleaner and brighter than normal. On this visit I was doing the INON photography course and received the professional standard of instruction I have come to expect for the very experienced team. They tech at the speed and... More
