To our Shedd Adventurers and those hoping to travel with us in the future: 

We look forward to traveling with you to incredible aquatic destinations and look nature in the eye around the globe sometime soon. The health and safety of our travelers and staff is our utmost priority on Shedd Adventures, so all remaining 2020 trips have been cancelled at this time as we practice an abundance of caution and carefully monitor recommendations from global and public health authorities regarding COVID-19 travel advisories and safety. We have heard from many of you that you are eager to get out on a Shedd Adventure again soon. We are too! For the most up-to-date information on Shedd Adventures, please sign up for our trip alerts here.

If you would like to adventure with us a little closer to home in the meantime, join us on the Chicago River on our Kayak for Conservation program or book your visit to the aquarium!

If you would like to help support Shedd Aquarium and offset the financial impact of our closure, we invite you to make an impact that will ripple into the future.
