I just went to Shedd Aquarium, in Chicago. Not to sound like a snob, but after diving, I’m not really into aquariums anymore. I was so excited to hear that Shedd offered a meet and greet with the Beluga Whales! So, you put waders on and get in a freezingggggg pool with the whales and trainers. The waders suction tight to your body, felt like a wetsuit, I had to remember not to pee haha. The trainers let us do several tricks with the whale; made it sing, you got to massage it’s tongue inside it’s mouth with your hand (whale’s a freakkk!), you got to make it come up and kiss you, and lastly spray you with it’s blowhole. I was down for everything but the spray….. I’ve had my share of watery substances coming at my face, haha No thanks!
Coincidently, the documentary, Blackfish, came out the next evening on CNN. All I can say is I’m glad i left unscathed, not trying to be on an episode of, When Good Whales Go Bad!!!
