Looking for a special visit to the Shedd Aquarium? You otter try their new exhibit. The new $110 program will bring participants "behind-the-scenes to interact with the charismatic and naturally curious otters through an acrylic, clear partition." Those who opt in for the experience will have an opportunity to feed, touch, play with and take photos with the popular marine mammals. The encounter costs $109.95 for adults, $94.95 for kids and $64.95 for members. It also includes express entry, admission to the aquarium and a ticket to the next available aquatic presentation. “Guests have never been able to come face to face with the otters like this before at Shedd, and we cannot wait for them to see what we see every day,” Steve Aibel, senior director of marine mammals at Shedd Aquarium said in a statement. “While they may come in because of the gregarious and engaging nature of the animals, we hope that connecting our otters up close and seeing them look back at you will have a real impact on folks. We want guests to walk away with a greater love for aquatic animals and a real understanding on why they need our help.” Sea otter encounters and other experiences can be booked here.
