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!

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. 🙁
