I have photographed a number of professional non profit events on the Gateway Clipper and have found their staff to be friendly and professional, the food served has always been wonderful and the boat atmosphere is a lot of fun!
The Gateway Clipper Fleet is truly an enjoyable experience. I have photographed many weddings on the Clipper and the beautiful views, the rivers, the city of Pittsburgh in the background, the view from the deck and especially night time is quite an unforgettable experience. My wedding customers and the guests actually thought we were on the high seas. It was an experience that I will always remember. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
