Looks like a fun trip Fontaine, I enjoyed going through the images on your Flickr page. Which boat did you use for Komodo?
We used Mermaid II, they were excellent but our Indonesian guide was a bit strange, most of the time he wasnt leading the dive and he didnt point much out, and then on night dives would go ballistic about a decorator crab.... At one point he had a big piece of loose coral in his hands the size of a bowling ball that he picked up and just dropped for some reason, then managed to get a fish and pierce it onto his pointer like he was skewering it for a BBQ, he then swam off with it for no apparent reason whatsoever, it was unfortunate because the other guides were excellent.
Other then our strange guide, everything was great, we had our two kids with us and they were looked after very well and enjoyed themselves, food was excellent, boat was clean, and everything ran smoothly and safely. Also there was only 10 diving guests which made it nice and roomy.
