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!
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.
Jane was our guide for the St. Martins and Bay of Fundy excursion. She is a storehouse of information, humour, and wit. Delightful person. Great tour.
The Best of Saint John hosted by guide Marilyn was excellent. After several tours with good guides, she stands ahead of them all. Knowledgeable, prepared with photos, books, lobster gadgets, and more, she improved the tour experience. Very good with people and a bonus for the city of Saint John. Highly recommend this tour. It included the right mix and all the important things that a western Canadian wanted to see.
Outstanding trip with Bev to Granite Town Farms, St. George, New Brunswick for a great wild blueberry education and tasting of many delicious goodies. If you can't make it there - but want to have tasty and unique gifts - you can't go wrong with their blueberry/lime salsa or their blueberry vinaigrette. Stock up! Google Granite Town Farms for more info. Bev made the entire trip educational and fun. Highly recommend this excursion.
Amazing photography tour. Both my husband and I picked up some tips. Lance was a great teacher for both beginners and more experienced photographers. I highly recommend this tour company. Thanks for the great experience, Lance!
