Great Boat Ride at Night

Our group had a great ride with singing and talking from the Boat Museum back to near our hotel. The boats are well equipped and safe for travel.

I was not able to take a boat trip on Galilee but was moved all the same by the incredible significance of this place. The views are lovely and the area has a peaceful feel to it. It was larger than I expected. It was so moving to think of how important this sea was in the life of Jesus... More

Such a beautiful place to go on a boat ride. The hilly terrain around the lake is certain to take your breath away. Most of the time the sea is quiet, but winds can come up without warning. It can calm down just as quickly. A very beautiful clean lake.

I went on a boat trip which lasted about an hour and we had a sing song and dance and enjoyed the tranquil ride on the water. Great trip on a famous sea.

If you are a pilgrim to this area then you do not need to be convinced to get out on the sea. A very memorable experience.

You will never forget the time you have here. I highly recommend a sail across to the other side on one of the many cruises.

Went here with a tour group last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the promenade and was beautiful in the evening when the lights came on. If you like bargaining there are a few stalls here for the kids and adults alike. Hotels are on this promenade..

1 boat ride may grab up to 40 people per boat. There will be entertainment, they will adjust it to where you are from. You can dance as well at the boat. The sound system is great. They may sell you souvenir too and have a bucket for tips. The boat will show you how big is the lake, that's... More

The Bible comes alive as you tour around this historically rich area where Jesus Christ preformed most of His miracles. The Synagogue in Magdala is dated back to Christ's day. The Bible says He preached and taught in all the synagogues in Galilee. If those stones could talk.
