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

Guides Aldo and Sergio were very informative and helpful. The horses, too, acted very well, except, most of us would have liked our steeds to enter into deeper ocean waves than they were willing to do. The trails on the sand dunes were sometimes exhilarating, as some paths were steep, but with steady horses, there was no worry. Recommend this... More

I went on a Saturday afternoon for horseback riding and zip lining. We got there early and had to wait a bit for the horse ride. The place is filthy. Bathrooms are dirty black. There were so many flies we had to keep moving our arms to avoid getting them in our face and mouth. I concur with another reviewer,... More

The guides did a great job of making sure we had a great time! However, I highly frown upon the owner or the person responsible for "feeding" the horses. Majority of the horses were what I would consider skin and bone and not properly fed / watered. They had limited water to drink that was dirty. Not enough feed was... More

My wife and two daughters thoroughly enjoyed their ride on the beach. The staff made sure to place each of them on horses they could handle based on their individual experience. The ride is exactly as described...peaceful, scenic and fun. I highly recommend this for any family. Plus, the price was great!

We had a good time. The horse handlers were great and seemed very knowledgeable and in control. The morning ride was a very large group, but I think we would have liked a smaller group that was less crowded.
