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

My husband and two kids, ages 11and 13, joined me in a beach horse ride. My husband had never ridden a horse before, and my kids had only ridden horses while being lead by someone in carnival type settings. I have found that a lot of horse ride places advertise beach rides but don't actually hit the beach. This is... More

Wonderful experience for my 6-year old granddaughter. Horses were great and our guide was Victor, who was very friendly.

We went on the 10 am ride and it was awesome. Everyone should ride a horse on the beach at least once in their lifetime. The horses were great and one of our guides was named Victor and he was super friendly and knowledgeable.

OK, first let me say it wasn't perfect(what is?). Riding horse in south texas summer afternoon heat probably wasn't the best idea. HOT! Did I say it was very hot! Maybe do the morning or eveing tour. Also, a little mishap with my horse. He moved and I fell. @ 40 years young falling off a horse is not as... More

We went for the 4:30 ride and it was amazing! I suggest book online and save a little money. The horses were calm for the most part and didn't pose any problems. A lot of kids were on our ride and the guides made sure they were taken care of and it was made fun for all. Victor was one... More

Horrible conditions for all the animals! The rabbits are probably dead by now and you can tell the only feeding the goats get is what you buy and feed them. The obese pigs that are stepping on their own thin skin hanging from their butt! The llama kicked my grandson that was walking by! Horrifying! Never for 5$ of mine!

My 10 year old son and I visited twice this summer! Very fun, beautiful friendly horses and great guides! Victor was one of the guides this past weekend! Relaxing and well worth the price!

My husband and I had a great ride. We got stuck in traffic due to an accident ahead of us and they were very understanding. We were a little behind the others but they accommodated for us to join just after with our own guide. We had a great experience and they made sure we all had great pictures to... More
