Where it all Started
Pelican Bay was founded upon preservation, conservation and development. The community was referred to as Clam Bay, and renamed Pelican Bay in 1974. The mangrove forest was designated a natural resource protection area by Collier County in 1982. The master developer, WCI set aside common areas to be maintained in perpetuity under the guidance of the Pelican Bay Foundation, the master homeowner’s association.Learn more
