diving safarisThe giant Ocean Sunfish, or Mola Mola, are some of Earth's most fascinating and mysterious creatures. These passive Sunfish inhabit the dives sites of Bali all year round. However, the most common time of year to see the Mola Mola is from July until October.

The Ocean Sunfish or Mola Mola is the heaviest bony fish in the world with an average adult weight of 1,000kg or 2,200lb.  The fish is native to tropical and temperate waters around the world.  Mola Mola can be as tall as it is long when their dorsal and ventral fins are extended.

Mola Mola live on a diet that consists mainly of jellyfish, but because this diet is poor in nutrition they have to consume large amounts of food in order to develop and maintain their great bulk.  Female Mola Mola produce more eggs than any other known vertebrate(300 million at a time), Mola fry resemble miniature puffer fish about 2.5mm long.

By far the best place to see the Mola Mola is at Nusa Penida, Crystal Bay, Tepekong and Mimpang. The sites are extremely variable and require perfect timing and an expert guide in order to find the Mola Mola.
