This was a neat experience to get back and forth across the water to the game. Everyone was nice and accommodating.

We go into the Gateway Clipper every year to take in the warm weather and the beautiful Pittsburgh skyline. Great way to see the city. Make sure you go to the top to get the great view of the bridges and waterway

The boat ride is awesome, but not very long. It’s definitely something nice to check out if you’ve never been to Pittsburgh. In the summer they offer discount days to various types of jobs. Teachers, military, nurses... I took advantage of this and received a...More

There are different versions of Clipper outings, and none of them are bad unless the weather is. If you are a first time visitor, it’s a nice way to get “the lay of the land” (and the water!) that will help you to appreciate whatever...More

We took an afternoon sightseeing tour, and it was wonderful. The boat was beautiful and clean. There were drinks and snacks available. It was a fun and informative trip on all 3 rivers.

A fun overview of the Pittsburgh sights. It was a bright, blue fall day so a little brisk so the one hour tour was about right. If the temperature had been 5 - 10 degrees warmer two hours would have been even better.

We actually went on the dinner cruise. I have no experience with the wine cruise. They only had the buffet dinner on our cruise and cash bar to go with it. Check out their website I am sure the details will be on there.
