Îles de la Madeleine, February 8, 2019 - It is very feverish that we communicate with you this beautiful news today!

The winter adventure is back this year with Harp Seal watching at the Château Madelinot. As today (February 8), the condition for the 2019 season seems to be optimal.

With the information receive and study by the Château Madelinot profesionnals collaborators, the management team is please to announce as today, February 8, that all the weather and ice indicators show positive results to be able to operate the 2019 Harp Seal watching season by helicopter with landing on the ice.

This decision remain conditional as the ice situation stay the same until the end of the Harp Seal watching season (March 11). If for some unpredictable reason, the ice covering do not respond anymore at the higher standards we need to operate, we may have to reconsider the decision. The safety of our guest and employees is our top priority.

We look forward to welcome you from Feb.21-March 11 at the Château Madelinot, Magdalen Islands!
