Down the Lake of Galilee using a small boat inspired by the story of Jesus' followers while fishing in the lake of Tiberias. the ship is not too big, but the lake water is calm enough so that no passengers are drunk during the trip

The boat ride was great, Seeing the Mount of Beatitudes from the water was spectacular. The boat crew was funny, yet helpful and they had some nice trinkets to sell. We had a great day for sailing.
