Today’s dives were all in search of the Ocean Sunfish or mola mola, the largest bony fish in the sea. Down to thirty metres off the point it was dark and cold, maybe 15℃, but there were three molas waiting to get cleaned by the fish that eat the parasites off their skin. Unfortunately seven photographers all wanting to get a shot of an animal that spooks quite easily means a few get skunked. I was one of the few. The only consolation is that there were very few good photos from that morning as the conditions down there were so poor for photography. It was good to see these elusive fish though, as they are high on many divers top ten things to see.
The rest of the dives we would pop down to the icy depths to see if they were there, then come back up to about eight metres where the light and the temperature were more conducive to photography.
