Experience a boat ride across this freshwater lake in northern Israel!
In northern Israel, at the upper end of the Jordan River lies the Sea of Galilee (also known as Lake Tiberias or Gennesaret) – a critical source of water for the nation of Israel and one that has great significance in the Bible. Some of the most memorable biblical accounts that highlight this freshwater lake are the miraculous catches of fish at Jesus’ word (Luke 5 and John 21), the occasion of Jesus waking up in the boat and calming the storm (Matthew 8:23-27), and of course the time when Jesus walked on the water and Peter joined Him (Matthew 14:22-33). Enjoy a boat ride here as you get a firsthand look at the region where Jesus and His disciples lived.
