We spent a day with IDF (Zahal) sailors aboard their naval warship. From sunrise to sunset, we took an inside look into their training — from shooting at targets in the water to putting out fires in the middle of the sea. Here’s what your typical day would look like if you were a sailor in Israel’s navy. 

It’s early in the morning, and your ship is at bay…
