The walls of this dive site are thickly carpeted with soft corals which blossom in the current. Whilst there is a rainbow of different colours, here it is the purples, plums and violets which dominate, hence the name of the site.
There are also big gorgonian sea fans, bright red in the glow of lights, white and black fans and sea whips. Around and amongst the coral there are an array of reef fish such as golden and purple anthias, zebra angelfish, clown triggerfish, oriental sweetlips, unicorns, bannerfish and an incredible variety of butterflyfish.
Off the walls, under the overhangs and in the swimthroughs there are white tip and black tip reef sharks, nurse sharks, spotted eagle rays and much more.
No matter how many times you dive the Haze, you always want to come back.
