Mola mola or sunfish in Musandam, Oman

Short film documenting an amazing close encounter with a mola mola or sunfish shot between 40 and 47 metres in the Musandam, Oman.

There have always been rumours of the existence of an elusive mola mola or sunfish  in the Musandam but despite diving there for more than 10 years we’d never seen one. Then one day suddenly out of the blue (literally) we spot one! The video was shot on the Sony PMW-200 with a Gates housing and the SWP44 super wide port at depths between 40 and 47 metres. At these depths the low light conditions were a challenge but the moody shots really capture the other worldly experience of meeting this amazing creature.
