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.

We have been diving with these guys for a few years now. My wife passed her open water with them and has carried on to become a master scuba diver. Great instruction, brilliant dive guides and very helpful people. They always fit around our agenda. And make the extra time for an additional dive in the day should we want... More

I have just come home from a diving trip with Black Rock and find myself daydreaming in the office about diving every few minutes…it was my first diving experience and the team at Black Rock made it such a fantastic one.

The diving in and around Dahab is world famous. Black Rock deliver very high quality dive instructors and guides. And they go out of their way to make you feel at home--they even invited me to their house to have Christmas dinner when I was there over the Christmas break. I would go back in an instant.

My lovely dive guide, Sophie put me in contact with Jenny at Black Rock, knowing that Jenny is trained in INON. Jenny came around to my hotel and walked me through the set-up out... More
