Join the Aquila Crew
Our business growth means opportunity for talented team players.
Although our team has grown largely by referral through tourism industry contacts, we are always interested in hearing from hard-working and fun-loving individuals who have a vision for melding their personal and professional goals with our company’s objectives. Although education and experience are assets, Aquila also hires for attitude and drive – so be creative!
Seasonal Team Members
Aquila’s growth also means that we often require new team members to fill an increasing number of seasonal positions each year, including
- Tour Guides
- Pier-Side Team Members
Each winter, we assess our need for tour guides for the coming season. If you are interested in one of these positions, please send an e-mail to Sam indicating why you would like to be a tour guide and what skills you have that lend themselves to this position. This is casual employment, ideal for retired professionals, and requires a flexible schedule from May to October, excellent communication skills, and a love of people. And while not necessary, fluency in languages other than English is always an asset! Since starting to host ships from TUI, AIDA and MSC, we are now seeing demands for German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French-speaking guides and interpreters.
Pier-Side Team Members
With our growing cruise business, Aquila is seeking individuals to work with our pier-side team on cruise ship days. Roles pier-side can vary, and include managing transportation, dispatching tours, communicating with guides, providing information to guests, and handling pier-side tour sales. These positions are part-time, working cruise ship days from May to October. If you are interested in one of these positions, please contact Sam.
Heather was so informative on all aspects of the Bay of Fundy and as a yachtsman I was so absorbed with her most detailed explanation of the high tidal rise and fall of the water. The journey out to St. Martins was a delight and Mario was so helpful in taking a photograph of my wife and I together with my camera, I as the photographer are usually out of the shot! I cannot recommend Heather and Mario highly enough, they both were a joy to be with all day long, thank you, thank you. I look forward to being with you again in the future.
Prior to this tour, I already had high expectations of Aquila … I don’t know HOW you did it - but you DID IT! You exceeded even my high expectations! Bravo to the whole team! Many, many thanks to you and your company for this extraordinary adventure.

Barb was informative, interactive and made sure we all had a great time. She was one of the top 2 tours we took. Kudos to her being on your team.
We signed up for a tour and had the pleasure of having Al as our tour guide. We found Al to be an interesting, engaging man with a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed our tour. We hope to come back to New Brunswick. We feel that Al is a great addition to your staff
