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.

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

We just went there to kayak. This facility should be shut down for negligence of their guests' safety. They wouldn't stop you nor warn you if a thunderstorm was coming. A foreigner from a next door resort screamed at us to go back because a...More

Not sure if I would swim inside the crater. There were extremely hot areas were the water was bubbling, and the strong smell of sulfur was everywhere.
