Fishers Pedestal is one of the better known dives just offshore Sunrise Boulevard and Fort Lauderdale Beach. Located right inside the middle reef line on a white sandy ocean floor she is one of the top sites reachable for local dive boats. There are three large mushroom shaped coral heads or pinnacles that rise up to eighteen feet from its surface. The three of them form a triangle in which each of them resembles a pedestal of twelve feet high.
Nassau groupers and other large fish wait in turn to be cleaned at the several cleaning stations in this area. Neon gobies and cleaning shrimp man one of nature's weirdest systems between predator and prey. It also seems to be a breeding area for barracuda's as you will see many juveniles swimming and playing around the pinnacles. Macro photographers will like the many with coral encrusted overhangs and coloured anemones as they provide for excellent former award winning photographs. Other sights such as nice star corals, feather worms and christmas tree worms make this part of the reef one of the best diving sites according to many divers.
