Avalanche is undoubtedly one of the best "temperate water" reefs in South Africa. Hard and Soft corals fight for space on this reef with the multitude of sea fans and sponges.
Avalanche is about 150m long and runs in a east-west direction. This dive spot has numerous walls and pinnacles rising from 28 meters up to 17 meters. The reef teems with fish. Game fish are often spotted along with the occasional shark.Variable soft corals grow here in abundance and gives the reef a predominantly purple colour.
Avalanche is also home to the Wildside divers mascot "Horace", a horse fish which is a very rare and peculiar fish mostly at depth and in cold water, but a few have made a home for themselves on the Wildside reefs.
