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.

Zip-a-thon: We don’t limit your number of zips. With our unique quick zip-line transition system you will be able to zip around the zip-line circuit as fast, or, slow as you want to during your session. You will have the maximum zip-lining fun experience that you can within an hour. Believe me, an hour of speed zipping here is an experience not obtainable anywhere else.

Zip-line Towers: The main tower has three 2,500 sq/ft levels for zipping and observation. Zippers start at the top level with four (4) - parallel zip-lines to zip 500 feet to the landing tower. The four parallel zip-lines allow high volume zipping for groups or families to zip together and to simultaneously share their zipping experience. Once the zip-liner gently lands, our Staff will un-clip them from the zip-line cables and directed them to the stairs for their return zip. Typically the return zip has a slight tail-wind and is much faster. The return braking system is the automated Zip-Stop Brake for your safety.

Requirements: Minimum age is 10 years old. Weight limitations are a minimum of 60 lbs and a maximum of 300 lbs. (We will weigh you). Anyone with medical or physical issues, pregnant or any other ailment can’t go on the zip-lines.

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).

Have a special occasion or event in mind? Just give us a call and we will be glad to help plan your special Beach Wedding, group party or birthday. Remember, we create memories!

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.

  • My wife and I decided to go on a sunset ride at 530. The process was very simple and easy to reserve a spot and the ride started on time. Although we didn't do the adventure activities they looked really fun. The guides took us down the beach, across the sand dunes, and on the calm side of the beach. Watching the sun go down while we ride will always be a great memory for the two of us. Thank you Frank and Jenna of island Adventure for the wonderful time. We will recommend to others and can't wait to come back to do the zip lines.
  • Took my daughter to ride the horses. We did the sunset ride for two hours and it was absolutely beautiful. They had a fairly large group of about 30 people. The tour guides were really knowledgeable and were actually kinda funny and not uptight. My daughter enjoyed it so much and didn’t want to leave. They also have a petting zoo and zip lining among a few other activities. Well worth the price and horses are well maintained. Thank you guys for bringing memories that will last a lifetime.
