Black Rock Staff

Hayden – IDC Staff Instructor/Boss!

The founder of Black Rock. If he’s not servicing equipment, managing your holiday or planning the next venture then he’ll be in the water – so you may find yourself lucky enough to be diving with the big man himself!

Renate Emmler – Manager & IDC Staff Instructor / The German with Italian Flair !

29 years ago I first came to Dahab and fell in love with the place. I did dive in many other places in the world but always came back to Dahab. 2008 I joined the Black Rock Team and turned my passion for diving into a passionate lifestyle. And I love it !!!

The possibility to teach in german, english and italian language is perfect for me. I continued the Black Rock philosophy, to teach in small groups and take an individual approach, proved to be successful! Making people dive and see the smile after a dive is just the best thing.

I am looking forward to meeting you at Black Rock. Cheers.

Ich freu mich auf Dich. Es ist einfach fantastisch hier. Bis bald.

Sono contenti di conocerti. Qui e simplici fantastico. A presto.

He is also famous for his excellent Bedouin barbeques in the mountains that are not to be missed!
