Fishing journalist and host of WIN TV’s Fishing Australia has decided to call Pelican Water home! Rob Paxevanos has been lured to the lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast and specifically Pelican Waters, where he is able to enjoy the outdoors with his family, instead of reporting about it. Visit the Fishing Australia website at http://www.fishingaustralia.tv/.

Rob's latest update: "Spring has sprung, the summer whiting have moved into the passage and are hungry for baits and poppers, big flattties are out of hibernation, and lots of other fish are on the move. Even spotted a few XL whiting above the loch! It’s a great time to enjoy good weather and a few fish along the way".
Boating and Kayaking in the canals of Pelican Waters, the Pumicestone Passage and offshore from the Caloundra Bar is a popular pastime for many residents and tourists alike.
The calm waters of the Pumicestone Passage provide an ideal playground for a variety of watersports. Kayaks, boats, jetskis, paddleboards, water skiing, windsurfing and pontoon boats are just a few of the many options available.
Offshore fishing is also a favourite for many, with access direct to offshore reefs, via the Caloundra Bar.
The canals of Pelican Waters accommodate a variety of size of boats with approximately 4.3 metres clearance under bridges at spring mean high tide (Excluding the Abbey Court homesites entrance bridge, which has clearance of 3m). For the Northern Lakes residents, access out of the canals to the Pumicestone Passage is via the Lock and Weir system, which again can accommodate a wide range of boats, kayaks and other watercraft.
A canoe and kayak access ramp is located within the park on "The Passage" to assist in accessing the water. "The Passage" is Pelican Waters' current land release located within the Northern Lakes precinct, just off Pelican Waters Boulevard.
