'Havayama' on the Sea of Galilee
This Passover, 'Havayama' is launching a unique cruise attraction, one of its kind in the world, a self-sailing and navigation cruise. The cruise takes place in motorboats without the need for a sailing license.

The content and audio explanations during the cruise include the geography and history of the cruise route and the entire Sea of Galilee and will take you to the magical nature spots that not many get to see in the national lake.
The "Havayma" project was established in Kibbutz Ginosar, by a member of the kibbutz, the founder of the project, who managed based on his childhood experiences and deep acquaintance with the lake, to establish an innovative tourism project that combines a sailing experience, nature, content and love for the Sea of Galilee.
The activity takes place in accordance with the most stringent safety regulations. Before embarking on a cruise, participants will undergo safety instruction and wear a life jacket during the cruise. Also, during the cruise, the "Havayama" inspection unit will monitor the movement of boats along the route and provide a solution in case of need.
At the end of the cruise you can enjoy in the "Havayama" complex overlooking the Sea of Galilee, a quality kosher cafe, construction of fishing rods and fishing, a sculpture workshop, observation trips along the Sea of Galilee, changing rooms, toilets and showers, a changing station, and free access to the adjacent beach.
