A dream come true
I dont think words can possibly describe absolute pleasure it was working with gateway clipper and our wedding planner, Emily. First the planning process was made an absolute breeze because the best thing about the gateway clipper was how the DJ, photo booth, and baker was all kinda included if you chose it to be which made planning just a little less stressful! Lastly, our wedding was an absolute dream! Our guests are still raving about how exciting it was to ride up and down all three rivers and enjoy the beautiful city of Pittsburgh at night on a boat all of our own! The staff was very helpful and so sweet! Lastly, our DJ and photobooth (highly recommend) did an AMAZING job keeping the party moving and keeping our family up on the dance floor all night long! There are a few things I would change about my wedding day however, choosing the Gateway Clipper as our wedding venue was not one of them!Sent on 07/29/2019

We can not say enough good things about the Gateway Clipper. We held a 'Parivar Milan' (family union) there for our family and our future daughter-in-laws family. We basically were introducing a Charlotte family to Pittsburgh and to some new and old Indian traditions. It was wonderful. We worked with Steve who was beyond fantastic. He listened, suggested, encouraged, and held our hands the entire way. Communication via email or phone was always prompt. He arranged for us to taste the chef's Indian food. He suggested some decorating ideas and helped us along with the ideas we already had, no small feat. When it decided to rain, moving our corn hole game inside was no big deal. Everyone loved the Polish and Indian food, the Pittsburgh cookie table was awesome, as was the assistance with our handicapped guests. From dropping off the decorations the day before, to helping the day of the event I can not say enough about the entire staff. Thank you Steve and all the staff of the Gateway Clipper!Sent on 05/11/2016

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.
