Have just returned yesterday from Dahab after a perfectly organised week of diving with Black Rock. Renate's communication prior to the holiday was excellent, and Hamza, our instructor, planned a beautiful week of diving. Pick-ups from our hotel made everything fuss-free, and specific requests like camera hire, night dives and even a barbecue up in the mountains were all accommodated.... More

I recently took a group of 10 out to Dahab to complete various courses. The staff were helpful, friendly and ready to accommodate our various requests. Everyone enjoyed the diving and it was evident that Blackrock is a professional and well run company. No requests were too much trouble and everyone benefitted from the superb tuition in a safe and... More

At the end of last year I followed my Instructor Development Course at Black Rock Dive Centre, Dahab before (successfully) taking my Instructor Exam in Dahab. I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff, but particularly to Renate, for making me so welcome during my 2 week experience. Nothing was too much trouble for any... More

Staff of the Black Rock Diving Centre are a professional and skilled team, managed by Renate, a highly competent and charming Dive Centre Manager. The centre came highly recommended by a number of experienced UK based recreational divers and frankly is ideally located on the main water sports beach in Dahab, flanked by a range of hotel complexes and adjacent...

Once again Black Rock has provided a fantastic, individually tailored dive experience at a very reasonable cost. Renate organised everything perfectly from airport transfer to hotel accommodation and dive package. I took the PADI self reliant diver course with Richard instructing. First class individual tuition tailored to suit you is very much the house style. The course itself is a... More

I spent a week taking my PADI advanced open water qualification and doing fun fives with my girlfriend here. Renata and Richard were amazing hosts and instructors and made our time really fun whilst training us to a great standard. We were there in december 2013 and the whole town was pretty quiet, but the whole place felt very safe... More

We spent 3 days with Black Rock last week and were very impressed by their customer focus and approach. Very organised and thorough but very relaxed at the same time. Dive instructor Richard was excellent at teaching and building confidence with beginners, I would definitely recommend. The only negative is the wet suits and bcd's we hired looked quite old... More

Having just returned from a holiday in Dahab, Egypt. I felt I needed to share. I took my son, who had only qualified 6 days before we went, and my wife who is a diving widow. Rante and the guys at Black Rock sorted out diving for my son (open water), and me (instructor), and even something for my wife.... More
