Surise on the Sea of Galilee

As you head out to sail on the Sea of Galilee from the pier Tiberias, Genesaret, Capernaum National Park or Ein Gev, the spray refreshes you, gulls wheel overhead, and other “sailors” call out greetings.
But the highlight is when your captain cuts the motor and you’re surrounded by landscapes sacred for thousands of years. In your wooden boat, resembling ancient ones, you feel you’ve gone back to a time when people depended on wind and waves for their livelihood and their miracles.
Here, Jesus walked on the water (John 6:19-21), calmed a storm (Matt. 8:23-26), and showed the disciples miraculous catches of fish (Luke 5:1-8; John 21:1-6). Many Jewish visitors also take the lake trip, heading out to where tradition says Miriam the Prophetess caused a miraculous spring to appear. Ask your travel planner or hotel staff to make your boat-ride reservation during your Galilee stay.
