Sea of Galilee, Tiberias

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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Tiberias trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • An early boat ride on the sea can be very peaceful and enjoyable. There are boats that travel from Tiberias up north to the shores of upper Galilee . Take one early and enjoy the ride  more »

  • Sailing on the Sea of Galilee wil forever be one of the great highlights of my life. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been able to visit, but knowing how many trips the Lord Jesus took across that water with His disciples made the time so much more special. To remember how He walked on that water and how He calmed hose waves was amazing.
  • I was there in 2005 it was a very interesting place we took the boat trip with 50 friends it was a very significant place in the Bible many sites around the lake if you go to Israel you must go no trip would be complete without seeing a galley
