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

This was surely a memorable moment for my wife and 18 year old son who has never ridden a horse and was able to have this experience. On our morning ride on Thanksgiving day the staff was very attentive, efficient, and organized. They made sure that everyone enjoyed their experience. If there were more stars to give I would! We...

I visited with my 12 year old son. We are not horse riders but were willing to have a go. We did the bucket list package (petting zoo, 30' zip line, 60' beach horse ride). We came out unscathed - the zip lining was the best - thrilling and safe. The horse riding was scary and painful - no instructions... More

The horse riding on the beach was a wonderful experience! I took my two girls ( 10 and 14). Ten year old had never rode and they gave her a wonderful, gentle horse that was just perfect for her!! We had dimming fun and Tasha and Jennifer were AWESOME guides! Always made sure everyone was close and not straggling behind... More

I was on the island for the half marathon and wanted to make the most of my time there. So I tried out the zip line and horse back riding. The folks at the adventure park took lots of time to prepare me for the zip line; and it was SO much fun!! Then they found just the right horse... More

We had an awesome time!! The best part was trotting and riding up the dunes. We really enjoyed it. My wife list her phone on the trip and our guide circled back with us to find it.

My husband I visited the park twice while we were on the island. We walked around and visited all the animals on the first visit then horseback riding on the second visit. I don't remember everyone's name but they ALL treated us like family, not customers or clients, but family! Miss Ryan introduced me to the new baby goats and... More
