Close encounter with a Mola Mola

March 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The eyesight of the Mola-mola, aka Sunfish, must be pretty bad as this giant of a fish came barreling straight at me, causing me to take evasive action during a dive at Crystal Bay, in Lembongan. The video, taken by my dive buddy Charles Ang in 2011 off the Indonesian resort island of Bali, shows the moment I had to swim away to avoid being hit by the giant fish. However, it still struck me with its dorsal fin. On second thought, if I had not avoided the fish, I would probably be hugging its huge bony face. Now, that would be a much nicer video.
