Gateway Clipper River Cruises  
CATEGORY: Sightseeing/Tours | LOCATION: Downtown Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is known for its three rivers, and no one shows them off better than the Gateway Clipper fleet! This fleet of five riverboats, with their slowly revolving paddle wheels and towering smokestacks, hearkens back to the by-gone steamship era of Mark Twain. These boats are not just quaint though – led by the 277 foot, 1000 passenger "Majestic," the Gateway Clipper boats offer many modern amenities and fine dining as they ply their way up and down Pittsburgh's rivers.
