Taal Lake Yacht Club's goal is to create environmental awareness through environmentally friendly sports. We run Taal Volcano trips and treks, and have sailboat and kayak rentals for both members and non members. We run Regattas and have boat storage for members. Weddings, Birthdays, Corporate events are by special arrangement. Accommodation can be arranged but for most, we are a daytrip from Manila. We (usually) have free wifi. We are pet friendly- as long as your pet is too.

We had a great time taking the secret trail on horseback. With 2 young children and a teenager with allergies issues, hiking was not an option for us. The kids really enjoyed the ride on horseback. The experience of going to a live volcano was...More

Thanks for the review. We are doing some clean up and fix up. So this review makes us feel good and helps us keep going on some of the new small additions and refurbishing that make a big difference. Peter

I really have to laugh pathetically at this. The "foreign guy next door" was me, the manager. We rent kayaks by the day. We do expect kayakers to know what they are doing when they rent from us. Our rates are for kayak rental not...More
