I went to the Dead Sea with a Korean Friend when I lived in kibbtuz.

It was fun... though I wanted to swim, and tried desperately turn belly down, and got the salty water in my mouth and eyes and DANG it hurt! So if you go there, lower yourself down gently and slow, use very slow movements, and use your body as a boat, if you want to get deeper in. That is, just float and row yourself forward (or backward, because that's the way you are going to move) with your arms.  Also, remember that the water is a huge mirror, and you will get sunburned just by floating there. Don't go so deep and stay there for so long that you get badly burned.

Because of the salt content of the water, you float more than you swim

 No pictures of me in a bathing suit!  I wouldn't do that to the world, but my husband and I did go out and float in the Dead Sea.  I am surprised that my husband agreed!  He doesn't swim, and doesn't like the water,  However, since he couldn't drown and would automatically float, he agreed to try it out!   It is one of those things I encourage you to try!  Lot's of people out enjoying the sun and the water!

I lived in Israel for 7 months and I had the change to go to the dead sea 3 times. It was pretty cool!

Very salty. It's heavy to have control on your body inside it

It was interesting experience. I've had a rest with my friends in Egypt and we decided to see Dead sea and Israel. The next day we went on an excursion in Jerusalem.

Birthright we went to the dead sea on our first day there after hiking massadah. We met up with the other bus so i got to swim with Julie also. The salt keeps you afloat but really stings any cuts and your eyes but it was a great experience.

Yes, you do float! The water is very salty and as hard as you try, you will end up floating.

I floated in the Dead Sea in December of 2008 as part of my Birthright trip to Israel for 10 days. I traveled with a group from Ohio State University, Ohio University, and a few from Miami. We traveled out of Fort Lauderdale.

 Passages Israel Trip: I did swim in the Dead Sea, but I didn't want to ruin my camera so I didn't take any pictures while in the water!

On Birthright, we came to the Dead Sea and Mosada in one day and it was beautiful out. It was the strangest sensation to be in water and not be able to go under it.
