The two bodies were identified as Nachman Itach, 21, and Liron Karadi, 17. Searches are still ongoing for Itamar Ohana, 19.
The bodies were discovered after a fishing vessel fitted with a sonar device from the Israeli Navy identified two human-like objects in the water. Divers discovered the remains at a depth of 20-30 meters roughly 600 meters from the coast.
Given information about their disappearance last week, the two young men drifted roughly 300 meters from their origin before drowning.
The bodies were transferred to a police post at Kibbutz Degania where commander of the northern district and Deputy Commissioner Alon Asur updated the families.
The three young men arrived independently of one another during Passover break for vacation. Severe weather swept the three young men, who were on sea-mattresses, into the heart of the Kinneret where they went missing.
The same day the three went missing, police rescued some 80 people who had gone adrift.
