The Momo Story
How it all started:
Our affinity with the sea began more than 20 years when we went on a trip to Bali, with the apex highlight being party and booze. We took a trip out to the sea for some snorkelling but quickly realised that it was not really cut out to be a part of our booze filled itinerary.
We were all loafing around the small boat with our snorkelling instructor, Wayan, floating on the pristine water of Padang Bai and making party plans for the night. It was at this time when we spotted the shadow of a gigantic fish near our boat. Wayan was quick to let us know that this is a rare sight and we were mesmerised by the sighting. It was at this point we knew we have to obtain diving certification and hope for a chance to observe this magnificent creature up-close.
We have been diving in Bali ever since, always keeping a look out for this gigantic fish while appreciating the beauty of the underwater world. We also came to learn of the name of this magnificent fish. In this amazing part of the underwater world, we call this fish…. Mola Mola.
