A large freshwater lake situated on a northern part of the Israeli-Jordanian border, Sea of Galilee offers visitors scenic hiking, swimming, and boating opportunities. Featured prominently in ancient Jewish and Christian scripture, the sea served as the site of much of Jesus Christ's ministry in the Gospels. Today the lake provides a source of fresh water to Israeli homes and attracts flocks of visitors to its shores. Taste fresh fish at restaurants on the lake's edge, walk along the pier in Tiberias, or board a boat for a tour from the water.

  • The sea of Galilee, which is actually not sea but a Lake (the one of Tiberias) is important because its surroundings spent much of the life of Jesus. It is beautiful and can be a highly recommended boat trip. Here the inhabitants of the place were effective fish and history tells us that several fishermen disciples were from this area.

  • Boating by the sea of Galilee, is reviewing the Apostles, is to review Jesus. There was the scene of many miracles. Was there a scene of great teachings. Stage's "big catch".
