I think to see a real boat from 2000 years ago is really great. It is better than just seeing a picture of what some one thinks it would of looked like.

A must see in Gallilee. This antiquity was discovered in 1986. It was removed and restored and now stands in the Galilee Miracles Centre. There is an interactive presentation with a movie as well as the actual restored boat on display

A great place to gain insight into Jesus life around the Galilee area. The ancient boat provides a worthwhile artefact to visit I would recommend a trip onto the lake on one of the many your boats. Great views. Great experience. Great fun
