Mola Mola at Nusa penida
Head down to 30 meters (100 ft) and gaze into the distance. Perhaps this will be your lucky day. Perhaps you’ll come face-to-face with one of these gentle giants. Be aware of the cold water and the strong currents. Stick close to the reef and stay close to your guide. But if it’s your day you’ll have an encounter you’ll never forget.
Mola (oceanic sunfish, sometimes called moonfish) are the world’s heaviest bony fish. They weigh up to a 1000 kg (2200 lbs) and have an average length of 1.8 m (5.9 ft) and a fin-to-fin distance of 2.5 m (8.2 ft). Your first sighting of one of these one-ton giants will be an unforgettable moment. Take a look at the video at the top of this page to see these gentle giants filmed by our videographer.
Mola mola usually inhabit the deepest oceans and range far beyond the depths of the scuba diver. However Bali is one of the few places where they are known to head to the surface. Mola season is right now (July to October) and they can sometimes be seen other months too. Join us as we dive Crystal Bay or one of the other nearby Nusa Penida Mola dive sites.
