Aquatics

Regardless of your expertise level, our aquatics facilities are fun for the whole family.

Pelican Athletic Club has an extensive aquatics program with two large junior Olympic sized pools, a small wading pool and a splash pad. The Splash Pad is a small water park with dump buckets, spray rings, water cannons & more. The pools are in the midst of a beautiful pool deck with easy access to locker rooms, PAC Cafe’, fitness floor and tennis areas. PAC’s pools are aerated in the summer and heated in the winter allowing the pools to be used year-round.  You can enjoy the cleanest, clearest, best kept pools on the Northshore at PAC.
