The Kayaking in the Sea of Galilee tour departs in the morning from Nazareth. We’ll set out in the early morning towards the Sea of Galilee, where we will meet our guide for the day and receive the equipment, Kayak and information needed for this exciting tour.

Following a brief safety discussion and outline of the day ahead, we’ll embark in our kayaks along the length of the Jordan delta towards the ancient fishing village of Bethaisda, where a number of Jesus’ apostles were born and raised. You’ll be able to observe a large variety of wildlife, including an abundance of bird species and aquatic animals. Then we continue on towards Capernaum, where we will arrive on the banks next to the Church at Capernaum where it is believed that Jesus chose his 12 Apostles.

After some delicious snacks in the garden at Capernaum, we will continue in our Kayaks towards the southern part of the Sea of Galilee and the Church of the Primacy of St Peter, as well as visiting the site of the Church of Loaves and Fishes in Tabgha. Following lunch, we will head to a beach nearby before traveling back to Nazareth in the mid-afternoon for a well-earned rest.
