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

Had a great time with my family. Riding along the beach was amazing. The horses were very well mannered. The guides were Joe, Aldo, and Peter and they were great. Joe could tell that my daughter knew what she was doing and talked to her about her goals on working with horses after college. Riding the horses just made her... More

We went on the sunrise morning ride. It was a 90 minute ride on the beach and through the sand dunes. We had a blast! The staff was friendly and inviting and they know each horse by name!

My 9 year old and went and neither of us are "horse" people but my little one WANTS to be an equestrian girl. The guides were patient and supportive, encouraging both of us. Will be going again in a few weeks with my oldest daughter.

For our last day on the island, we went on a morning ride. Our guides Joe and Arnold were both very patient and incredibly nice. It was an awesome experience. 10/10 would definitely recommend.
