This might not be your regular hunt for travel deals or adventures, but the Shedd Aquarium Chicago has something truly unique for you. Experience wildlife at its fullest and immerse yourself into the habitat of each destination is what Shedd Aquarium Adventures is all about.

Expect to explore your destination in a small boat or a kayak, maybe swimming in the Amazon jungle or scuba diving in the wild reefs in the Philippines will bring some of the best Shedd Aquarium exhibits to life. Also, keep in mind that many of the programs will require moderate activities like walks and hikes, so if you just want to chill and relax, this might not be for you—the itineraries call for true nature lovers and adventure seekers!

About The Author

Henrique Kerch

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
