We did the July 4th dinner cruise to see the fireworks from the boat on the river. Excellent view of the fireworks facing Point Park and a way to avoid the crazy crowds. Dinner menu was actually very good. Chicken was very flavorful and tender. I wasn't expecting to be a minority with us being in our late 40's early... More

Did the 2 hour tour with the lunch and it was worth it. More expensive but the food was good and spent most of the time on the top deck enjoy the breeze off the water and the view. Definitely recommend doing this tour.

They took our picture at boarding and wanted $30 for them! That is way too much - I didn't see too many ppl buying them. We went with some out of town guests for the 1:30 sightseeing tour - everything seem to run smoothly and the speaker guy was entertaining enough and had some very interesting facts about Pittsburgh.

In 1958 a prescient businessman started a tour boat business in Pittsburgh, well before the city’s remarkable clean-up. A less likely tourist attraction would be hard to imagine. But the lure of seeing the city by water was an immediate success, and today the Gateway Clipper operation operates numerous boats and themed tours (many suitable for kids) from its dock... More

Us being water lovers made this a great experience. We have been on the clipper fleet many times over the years. We did italian,hawiian,firework,polish and light up cruises. It is also a good way to get back and forth to the stadiums.

My senior class took a trip to Pittsburgh and went for a dinner cruise on the gateway clipper. The dinner was terrible. It was a mix between italian and chinese food. We ate egg rolls, chicken tender, swedish meatballs, and bruschetta. The staff was very rude and the bathroom was poorly cleaned. Needless to say the views of Pittsburgh were... More

We take pride in the product that we present at the Gateway Clipper Fleet. We provided excellent food and service the day you were onboard the cruise. The menu was chosen by your event representative and if you would like to question the selections, we suggest you speak directly with that person. We are a full service catering facility and...

Bought this on Groupon for a discount and it was a great way to start our visit to Pittsburgh. We went on a 730pm departure- few people onboard. The tour guide was very good and personable. Nice introduction to the city sights. We sat on top deck in the open air and had great weather for the hour long sail.

We went to the Gateway Clipper for the Fathers Day Cruise. It was ok. The ships are pretty old and run down. The food was sub-par. If you have an infant or need assistance, call ahead and make sure you get seated on the bottom deck. There are no elevators to the second deck. The scenery was beautiful and the... More

Loved it!! This was a surprise Father's Day excursion for my husband and we were not disappointed! I chose the last cruise of the day so we could see Pittsburgh and all of her glory at night with all of the lights. Fortunately the weather cooperated and we couldn't have asked for better conditions. It wasn't crowded at all. The... More
