The newly opened Tamarind Divers Lembongan, Bali, are excited to announce a unique offering for divers in the form of the PADI Mola Mola Awareness Distinctive Specialty course. The course has been created specifically to develop understanding of the biology, behaviour and responsible diving practices with the heaviest bony fish in the sea. Mola (aka Ocean Sunfish) can be found year round in the Bali region, but most sightings occur in the months August – October. The island of Nusa Penida, just 20 miles east of Bali, records the highest number of sightings of molas annually and Tamarind Divers, based on the nearby island of Nusa Lembongan, are ideally located to reach the best dives sites within a 30 min boat ride.

Did you know that molas can measure up to 3m from fin to fin? Find out more through this insight into one of the most wonderful creatures in the marine world.

The course consists of a student manual, a classroom presentation and two open water dives, with successful students receiving their unique certification card from PADI.
