About Us


Pittsburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The three vibrant rivers – the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio – frame our city and cut and wind through the lush green landscape surrounding them. The Gateway Clipper Fleet calls these three rivers home. Our riverboats sail daily presenting a Pittsburgh tour like no other. We showcase the stunning skyline, the magnificent architecture of the numerous bridges and the natural beauty along the riverbanks. Aboard these Pittsburgh sightseeing cruises, we show the Pittsburgh of today and give you a glimpse into her glorious past. While we always present the best view of the “Steel City,” it is aboard our Pittsburgh dining cruises that you really get to experience what Pittsburgh is all about. Our dining cruises feature delicious buffets that are expertly prepared by our award-winning executive chef. His menus feature the best of locally grown and prepared products that give our meals a Pittsburgh touch.

So, with this combination of magnificent views and fantastic food and drink, the Gateway Clipper is the perfect place to hold your Pittsburgh wedding or private event. Our professional event staff is here to make your event the perfect affair you want without all the worry on your part. Whether you are a happy couple eagerly anticipating the big day, or a corporate professional that doesn’t have the time to do all the planning, our professional event planners can and will do all the planning for you. From the moment you step foot on our Station Square Dock to the time you wave goodbye to your guests, we will give you the event that you want!

We are very proud that the Gateway Clipper Fleet has been sailing the Three Rivers for over 50 years. We are locally owned and operated by our third generation owner, Terry Wirginis. Our crew is dedicated to providing our local passengers and visitors from around the globe with a true Pittsburgh experience. There is no better way to see this breathtaking city than from aboard one of the decks of our riverboats! We hope to cruise with you soon!

Thank you for celebrating aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet where great cruises make great memories!!
