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

We booked the horseback ride online for the following morning. Once everyone was on a horse we took off for a long ride on the beach and on the sand dunes. Every horse had a unique personality so it made for an interesting ride. The scenery was beautiful and the guides were great.

We had not ridden horses for some time so I was a little apprehensive. But this was probably the best thing we did on our trip. It was a beautiful day and a perfect setting. The ride was great and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to their staff for a great time.

My family and I have taken a horseback riding excursion with South Padre Island Adventure Park every year for nearly ten years, sometimes twice in a weeks time. The guides are wonderful and cater to the rider's level of experience. The horses know their job and will sometimes test a riders skill at horsemanship in regards to eating sea grass... More

We had a great experience, the team was very accommodating. This was the first time we have done a beach ride. The hour and a half ride is plenty of time to really enjoy it

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
