Hi All,
I hope to be in Hurghada/Quseir/Marsa Alam in the first half of February. It seems it used to be possible to take an one-night liveaboard from Hurghada to the Thistlegorm to do a night dive on the wreck. Emperor Divers advertises this on their website but upon inquiry told me that they no longer offer ANY trips to the Thistlegorm out of El Gouna. Is anyone aware of any other dive shops offering this trip from Hurghada?
I would be very grateful for any leads :)

contact divers lodge, their website say they can do it: Safaris | Divers Lodge

Also I knew that colona divers used to so this mini safari, contact them and check, I knew they require minimum 4 divers to operate this trip: Colona Divers

My point is that February is tricky, you might face high sea preventing the passage from hurghada side to thistlegorm side, you have to check wind forecast and adjust your dates accordingly.
