Description:

We create memories! The Wells family has served South Padre Island for 5...

We create memories! The Wells family has served South Padre Island for 5 generations and we create memories that last a life time!

Our Adventure Park is located at the end of State Park Road 100 with forty acres of land spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Laguna Madre Bay that provides an unparalleled location for Adventure on South Padre Island.

Our horseback rides are along the beach and water's edge and we often see a variety of shoreline and marine life and we get to ride in the remote portion of the Island that few people get to experience. No crowds here!

Our Petting Barn is filled with birds and animals we have rescued or have been donated to us for a forever home. Children can enjoy a safe and educational interaction with all of our birds and animals (us big kids too).

Dolores also owns The Massage & Healing Arts Center and her licensed and professional Massage Therapists are ready for your pampered needs after a fun day at the beach.

Come; make your memories with us! We love what we do and we look forward to exploring the Island with you soon.

Doyle & Dolores Wells

Our morning ride on the beach was fantastic! Arnold and Ryan were great guides who took a personal interest in their group. Arnold was towing a small girl, but still managed to make conversation with other riders, always keeping an eye on the little girl. Ryan, (I'm sure I,m spelling her name wrong), was very attentive to the riders and... More

My husband and I went on a horseback ride on the beach at sunset and it was so much fun! There were others in the group but still very romantic! The horses will walk along the water line and even go into the water a bit at certain points. The tour guide stops a couple times to allow for pictures... More

The guides worked very hard to make sure eveyone had a good time. They matched the horse to the experience of the rider. Took pictures when asked. Several times they checked with the riders to make sure they were having fun. The only thing I would change, was the route of the ride. We left the park and rode up... More

My husband had only ridden once in his life and I have been riding for 50 years but I talked him into this bucket list of riding on the beach at sunset. The guides were so nice and super attentive. They gave my husband a sturdy bomb proof draft horse which really made his ride enjoyable. They put me on... More

Guys were thoughtful and encouraging. Good site for first timer. Quite the thrill. Jumping off a platform. Arnold did a good job guiding us over dunes, down the beach of the Gulf and along the bay to watch the sunset.

Every woman wants to ride a horse on the beach, right? Here's the place! Went riding with two other ladies. Our ages ranged from 32 to 70. It was a bucket list moment for all of us. Our guide, Joe, was not only extremely polite and helpful (helping us on/off the horse professionally) but he was knowledgable, informative about island... More

If you want to get away from the shops and the cars for awhile, this is a great way to experience the beach.

Our visit to the KOA in South Padre Island was outstanding. The campground was excellent and we really enjoyed the horse back riding on the beach. We are thinking of doing it again next year.
