    Nitrox is a must for me.

    I went to Komodo 3 x on liveaboards, so I don't know much about any land-base resorts in Komodo. It's better to dive there on liveaboard, especially the southern region, too far to reach by day boats, so it's less crowded, away from riffraff, more quiet & remote.

    Indo Aggressor has Nitrox. Also Adelaar Liveaboard, Duyung Baru, Oceanic, Sea Safari VII

    I have never been in any of them so, no clue about them.

    Chilly, I missed the timing of your trip. As you know, many LoBs have Nitrox, very good guides, aircon, and decent food. Plus, you can visit the southern and western most dive sites.

    I agree with Luke regarding many day boats and high-end LoB, many guides do not really truly understand the dive sites, nor are they knowledgeable about fish and coral life. I have seen guides from LoB’s miss the split point for entry, or just miss the correct entry based on currents, tides, and lunar cycle. At certain tides, many great Komodo dive sites are so-so at best.

    The window for Komodo is late April to Late August. Many boats transition from Raja Ampat in late April and return in early September. PM me regarding LoB’s.

    Yes, I know this but I'll be in SE Asia during the winter months and as I wish to experience Komodo, I'm kinda stuck with that time of year.

    So sad, winter at Komodo. Let me think it through and try to make a well-reasoned suggestion.

    Depending on your wishes and needs there are plenty of options in town. Check Bay view Gardens, Eco Tree Lodge, or if you want something fancier Villa Domanik.

    Azul, it looks like your op is very focused on courses.
