Great experience

It was great to have been on the sea of Galilee. What a wonderful time to spend time on the water where Jesus was at one time. Waters were very calm and beautiful.

I've never swam in water where the fish were so plentiful and tame. This area, although historic, is very commercialized but still offers many "pilgrimages" to the holy sites in the area.

The Boat ride was fun. Savvy business men that they are, they provided music from my part of the world to keep the group excited. The weather in January was chilly and prone to rainfall so my experience was a slightly cold and wet one.

The view is good and relaxing. You can take a walk or just enjoy the view while you are traveling in your bus or your car.

To ahve a boat ride on the sea of galilee was inspiring. We had communion on the boat (with a tour of ministers) then the boat owner sang inspiration music which was very good.

The Sea of Galilee is such a great place to contemplate so many of the Biblical stories. One great way to do that is to take a Jesus Replica Boat ride from the Kibbutz, Nof Ginosaur. I recommend Daniel Carmel on his boat "Faith".
