Gateway Clipper Fleet

1 post in this topic


If your anywhere near Pittsburgh Pa the Gateway Clipper offers boat tours of the three rivers that are quite beautiful, but not if your in a wheelchair!  This very popular tourist attraction was where my daughters boyfriend wanted to propose, so he came to me to ask if I thought I could attend. I called and inquired about the accessibility and was told that they were completely accessible. TOTAL LIES!  First there is a very steep ramp that you have to navigate just to get to the dock. Once there they have a tiny joke of a handicapped bathroom stall and there is little to no room to get into the snack area. Once on the boat I found that the walkway to the restroom was extremely narrow ( 20 inches approx.) and even if I could have made it into the restroom the stalls were just as tiny!  Also the boat has three decks and of coarse the best view is from the top switch you can only get to by climbing two narrow winding staircases!  The day was ruined for me and made me feel so handicapped. I wrote to the owner as well as their customer relations and pointed out how inaccessible they were. They refunded our money but have made no changes to their website.
