    I was really impressed diving Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan in Bali... tons of variety. They compare very favorably to other world class sites like in Palau or French Polynesia. Bali is also a great place when you’re not diving.

    132' (40m) for about 5 minutes. :D

    DM (Today) had a great strategy on how to dive the Blue Corner. 5 of us, including @Jay and @foob were told to dive shallow at about 65' (20m) along the edge of the wall on our left shoulder and follow Today, who were at about 100' (30m) in the blue, in search of Mola Mola. There were another group of 4 below us heading at the same direction. When I saw bannerfish, coming out of nowhere and start to swim along with me, I immediately look into the blue and saw Today banging on his tank and pointing to faint grey object, that look like Mola Mola, out in the blue. I then zoomed down to the depth along with the bannerfish. The other group below us didn't see them, kept going, missing all of the excitement. By the time I was there, I saw 4 Mola Molas being cleaned by bannerfish. :)

    What a sight! What an experience! After we finished seeing them, we headed back to the shallow with still 1000 psi (75 bar) left in my tank. Thank you Today for the great dive! :D

    I suggest to go there in 2-3 weeks later, Augus/September. I have been in mid July and saw none.
