We couldn't recommend Black Rock more... we visited on a recommendation from a friend and it didn't disappoint, the dives were spectacular as well as expertly conducted by Renate and her team, we felt in very safe hands throughout. Its worth the extra to join the boat dive as the locations the boat goes to were beautiful, the food on... More

I cannot speak highly enough about Black Rock Dahab. Renate and her team of instructors did such a fantastic job with our group of 19 divers, catering for all levels of experience and making sure everybody felt a huge sense of achievement at the end of the week. Super friendly, efficient, flexible and totally professional…Black Rock is everything you're looking... More

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!!

Holiday started as ever with a friendly meeting with the arranged transfer at Sharm airport. follower by the 40 minute or so drive to Dahab. I was staying at... More

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.
