PARASAILING, also known as parakiting, is an extreme sports activity where you glide through the air wearing an open parachute while being towed by a motorboat.
Time to cross off parasailing from your bucket list because you can now experience it in Lake Taal, just one hour away from Manila!
Checkout Team OAP having fun at Lake Taal:
Here are some tips on how to organize your parasailing adventure at Lake Taal…
DIAMOND Watersports of Boracay Parasailing fame partnered with Club Balai Isabel to offer a 15-minute Parasailing adventure at Lake Taal in Talisay, Batangas.
They also offer other watersports adventures–Banana Boat, Flyfish, and Bandwagon. Soon, they will bring in the first ever Paraw Sailing adventure in Lake Taal!
The minimum age is 7 to try Parasailing. You have to sign a waiver before experiencing it.
You have to wear a life vest and get securely strapped with a harness.
Meet the Diamond Taal Crew who are experienced water sports experts and came all the way from Boracay! 🙂
You sit facing forward on the back end of the boat with your harness connected to the open parachute behind you.
You can bring your friend or designated photographer along the motorboat cruise for free. If you wan’t to add another passenger it’s an additional fee of P200/head.
Up, up, and away! It’s a great out-of-town day trip date for the nature lovers.
The parachute climbs all the way up to 500m above the lake.
Experience the thrill of the wind blowing in your face as you rise higher and higher with only one rope binding you to the boat.
It’s a bit scary, but your fears will go away as you start soaring through the Lake Taal sky and see the bird’s eye view of the volcano.
(TIP: Don’t forget to bring your GoPro to capture every moment of you Parasailing experience!)
You can signal the boatman below with an imaginary circle if you want to end before the 15 minutes.
Parasailing gives you the best vantage point to see the famed Taal Volcano and Lake Taal.
Go ahead and check off Taal Volcano from your “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” bucket list–in style!

Live an Awesome Life,
Disclosure: Our Parasailing experience was courtesy of our friend Kristine of Club Balai Isabel. I wrote this article with my biases, opinions, and insights. Read Our Awesome Planet Complete Disclosure Policy here.
P.S. One of these days, I will bring our boys to experience this. Aidan is a bit scared of heights so I wasn’t able to convince him to try Parasailing this time. 🙁

Such an awesome view! Never knew how bad I wanted to take a selfie in the air until I saw this honestly – will definitely have to try this out. Thanks for sharing!
I really want to try that. I just have this fear because I wear glasses. Will that be okay?
Thank you our awesome planet for the blog! 🙂
Thanks for mentioning that the minimum safe age for parasailing is 7. My husband and I are taking our family on vacation soon, and I was wondering if our kids would be old enough to try parasailing with us. Our kids are 11 and 8 years old, so I’m glad to hear everyone will be able to try it!
Thanks for the comment. They stopped their operations in Lake Taal and not sure if they are back.
