Sea of Galilee

Much has been written about the Sea of Galilee in the bible as Jesus' ministry centered around it. Also known as Chinnereth, Gennesar, or the Sea of Tiberias, the Sea of Galilee is actually a lake - it is the lowest freshwater lake in the world as it is situated 700 feet below sea level. Boats such as these are available for rent for pilgrims who want to experience sailing over the Sea of Galilee the way Jesus and the disciples did in the past.
