#expeditioncruising


A brown bear mauled two expedition guides from Un-Cruise Adventures as they led a shore excursion on a trail in Alaska.

The guides were leading a group of 22 cruisers from Wilderness Explorer on a hike on Chichagof Island on Thursday afternoon. The group encountered a brown bear sow and cub about 2.5 miles up the trail when the attack happened, according to a news release from Un-Cruise. All 22 passengers are unharmed.
