Lamalera White House is a dive site made up of many boulders in shallow water and is a unique dive site in the Raja Ampat area. The dive site is well known for being a World Heritage Site and has an abundance of marine life as a result. Divers should be aware that although it is a remarkable site, it is one of the few places in the world where the hunting of dolphins, sharks, and whales is still permitted.
The site starts at around 10 metres and drops off to about 25 metres in depth. The waters hold many different species and divers can expect visibility of up to 20 metres. The site offers divers the chance to see many of the species commonly found in Raja Ampat and most of the species found in the coral triangle region. Divers will also be able to spot dolphins, reef sharks, and whales on occasion.
The boulders are a fascinating place for macro divers and if searched can reveal a huge variety of nudibranchs. The dive is also a very popular spot for night diving because it is home to many pygmy squid and Spanish dancers that brighten up the nocturnal water.
