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

With rain threatening, we waited until the last minute to make a reservation for the 10:00am ride because of the tough cancellation policy, but the weather and the trail ride both turned out to be fabulous. The park has plenty of horses available so I imagine that those turned away are few and far between. There were 34 in our... More

Absolutely was a wonderful horse back ride by South Padre Island Adventure Park. You ride up the beach and then the sand dunes, absolutely beautiful and well behaved horses. Our guides were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend!!

Hubby and I did the 10am ride. It was beautiful. We had a ton of people in our group and most hadn't ridden before. It was a blast. Definitely a must-do! Two things: don't plan on necessarily riding together....the horses all have their own pace and their own horsey-bffs that they will want to stick with. And bring a bottle... More

I recently went on the sunset horseback ride with my girlfriend for Valentine's Day and it was a great experience. Our guides were very helpful telling us exactly how to maneuver the horses which was very helpful because my girlfriends horse kept staying behind so I had to make my horse stop and wait for them. The guides also took... More

2/7/17 Tasha, Victor, Quam, (and I forget the other fella's name) made our horse riding experience great! Those people work their butts off, to get all those horses ready for us!! I noticed, that when we were on the beach, if we started to ride up to a person, car, fisherman, etc., one of the workers, would nicely guide us... More

This was an incredible experience. We had a group of 8 and each of us had a horse that reflected our spirit. Our guides were knowable and friendly! We took the morning ride which is longer and it is well worth the extra money. We went farther north where there is lots of open space. I was able to get... More

My family and I went riding and it's was truly an amazing adventure. I would recommend this to anyone. The staff made us feel very comfortable and the horses were great. The sceneries were breathe taking would definitely do it again.

Tasha & Joe were great & knowledgeable guides for our horseback ride on the beach! I have always wanted to do this! It was a bit windy that day but the ride & experience were still fantastic! Would recommend this business to everyone! Can choose the length of the ride from 1 hr. to 4 hrs. and is suitable for... More

We took a great horseback ride at sunset at South Padre Island Adventure Park. We first went zip lining, which was okay but not the best zip lining we'd ever done, but then we went horseback riding and it was so much fun. Our guides, Jen and Jeff, were competent and patient, and it was a terrific experience to ride... More

Great experience, as usual. This was our third trip. Staff is friendly and caring. Horses walk at a slow pace for any age or experience.
