Overview

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 family vacation with 29 of us had a wonderful day horseback riding on the beach. All our guides were fantastic. Would do it again and again.

We took our 3 year old here to interact with some animals and to let her do something away from the beach for a bit. Outside the office where you park, you could get a close look at some ponies, horses, bison, and longhorns. The...More

Great place! They take excellent care of the horses, no flys around, and we didn't smell like horses when we finished. My 11 year old Grandson had a wonderful time and hopes to be able to come back next year. The wranglers were helpful and...More

I'm really sorry I missed your question. No, we can't allow double riding. Children age 6 will ride their own horse but be on a lead line led by my Staff. We want them to return with a good horse riding experience and... More
