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 wife and I did the sunset ride for the second straight summer. We had a blast. The horses seem well taken care of. They are also, in my opinion, very well trained. Our guides did a great job!

We had such a fun family adventure riding horses on the beach! The littlest grandchild, 6 yrs old, was 'in tow' by one of the guides there. She took his line and was in control of him, however, 'Bandit' took good care of him anyway! Our 11 year old granddaughter, was on 'Elvis' and he was easy for her to... More

We booked the 10am ride and it was awesome. Upon arrival we looked over the horses and they were well fed, good feet and coats. That made us feel so much better. The ride was beautiful and my horse Star was supposed to be hard to handle but she was a Star! Dr Pepper was a good one too. Our... More

I highly recommend this experience while on the island. The guides are very friendly, knowledgeable and experienced riders that took care of our entire group like the professionals they are. From the youngest and most inexperienced riders to the more seasoned riders. It was a great once-in-a-lifetime experience.

My family and I went on the Sunset Ride along the beach and sand dunes at the very end of South Padre Island. We booked the horseback ride through Island Park Adventures. The ride was about two hours and we rode along the beach, over the dunes and, literally, into the sunset. It was beautiful. The horse were well behaved... More

My boyfriend and I booked the 10 a.m. ride for my 24th birthday and it was amazing. Upon arrival we were checked in right away. We were surprised with how many horses they had in their stables.
