The Ultimate Adventure is an album recorded by Chick Corea and released in 2006.

Like his 2004 album To the Stars, The Ultimate Adventure is a musical tribute to the work of science fiction author and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.[3] The album draws heavily upon the rhythmic and melodic traditions of African, Spanish, and Arabian music.[4]

The Ultimate Adventure peaked number 7 in the Billboard Top Jazz albums[5] and also won two Grammy awards in 2007 for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance (Individual or Group) and Best Instrumental Arrangement.[6]
