Description

Chill with the coolest guys in town! Enjoy a cool visit to Cape Pond Ice Company, icing Gloucester’s fleet since 1848. We were featured in Sebastian Junger’s account of The Perfect Storm. Tours highlight the history of the ice industry, with vintage film of natural ice harvests. See first hand 300-pound block ice being made (up to 350 tons per day), fishing vessels taking on ice and ice sculptures being carved in our historic icehouse on Gloucester’s working waterfront.
