School of Mola Molas.. Oh My!

While we were out on the open ocean, we spotted a nice and large kelp paddy. When we motored by it, we spotted a couple mola molas beneath it. Then we realized it was an entire school of mola molas! It was such an incredible sight to see these large bony fish congregating in blue water.

The kelp paddy also served as a great background for some of the footage. Here’s a montage from the encounter.
