Welcome to Aquila!
Since opening our doors in 1982, Aquila Tours has been on an incredible journey involving a wide variety of aspects of the travel industry, both in Atlantic Canada and around the world.
Today, Aquila's area of excellence is delivering shore excursions to cruise lines when they anchor in the Bay of Fundy and call on Saint John, New Brunswick. At the encouragement of top executives at major cruise lines, Aquila established Aquila's Center for Cruise Excellence in 2007, offering workshops and customized training programs to Tour Operators, Ports and Destinations around the world. As the official training partner of the FCCA (Florida Caribbean Cruise Association), Aquila has spent much time in the Caribbean and Central America over the past few years, offering certifications to Tour Guides and Tour Operators.
In Saint John, we provide our cruise line clients in our "Living Lab" with a wide array of fantastic excursions for cruise guests - highlighting the Bay of Fundy region's most popular sights and the off-the-beaten-path experiences that only locals can provide. A key to achieving excellence for Aquila has been our dynamic, cohesive team, and throughout our journey, Aquila has held fast to our vision.
Our fun and energized Aquila Team continues to grow and be recognized as leaders in our industry by creating moving experiences with integrity while supporting professional and personal dreams.
This vision will continue to guide us into the future, as there is always something new and exciting happening at Aquila!
On May 31st we took the Saint John Scenic Trolley Tour and it was fanastic. Our tour guide Heather and her Driver were absolutely great. Thank you so much for showing us your Wonderful Historic & Clean City, last but certainly not least your people are equally wonderful
We recently took the "Coastal Photography Tour" when we visited Saint John, NB. The tour was very relaxing, and extremely informative. We learned a lot and got to take some amazing photos in some very unique and scenic places. The tour guide, Cindy-Lee Campbell was very professional and quite entertaining as well. She shared a lot of stories mixed with some humour and then sprinkled in all kinds of interesting techniques to apply when taking photos. She was just wonderful!! Thank you for the tour and the hospitality.
We thoroughly enjoyed Fay and the driver. She made you feel like you had been friends forever and tried really hard to get us to the Reversing Rapids at the right time, although nature didn't cooperate. We enjoyed the light meal at lunch and the opportunity for a little bit of shopping in St. Martin. Would enjoy doing this one again.
