The Sea of Galilee is located in northeastern Israel.
It is the largest water reservoir in Israel, and is considered one of the most popular sites among Christian tourists.
The sea was already mentioned in documents dating back to 15 BC. On this page, we have gathered for you our favorite attractions around the Sea of Galilee.
According to Christianity, Jesus walked on water on the Sea of Galilee, and his disciples thought that there was a ghost on the water. For this reason, many believers come here to immerse themselves in the waters. We recommend that you visit the site to envisage the miracle for yourself. This is one of the greatest attractions of the Sea of Galilee. If you would like to take a trip on the Sea of Galilee, we would be happy to organize a Jesus boat for you, a replica of the original boat, so that you can pray and feel the power where Jesus walked on water.
Not far from the Sea of Galilee is Kibbutz Ginosar where you can see the ancient boat known as the ‘Jesus boat’, dating back to the period between 50 and 70 BC. According to the New Testament, Jesus and his followers were fishermen and used a boat similar to the one that is preserved and exhibited.
If you like history, this is one of the attractions in the Sea of Galilee you have to try. Not far from the Sea of Galilee and Kibbutz Ginosar is Capernaum. This is where Jesus lived for a long period of time, as did some of his disciples. The village has many historical remains as well as ancient synagogues and churches, and offers a significant experience for everyone, regardless of religion or faith. Near Capernaum is Mount Nachum, also known as the Mount of Beatitudes, which is very popular among Christian tourists as it is believed to be the setting of the Sermon on the Mount.
If you are looking for a baptism site, we recommend either Qasr al Yahud or Yardenit along the Jordan river. Baptism ceremonies are conducted at both sites and we will be glad to help you get to the sites – as we are always excited to take our guests to be baptized in Israel or to just sail on a boat on the Sea of Galilee.
