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!
A top excursion and the best guide ever. She was fantastic!!! We were entertained - and educated for the total trip.
We recently took the Top 10 Tour with Paula as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic! She was energetic, informative, and organized. Best of all, she was so nice and really gave the impression she loves both her job and the Saint John area. She kept everything moving smoothly and filled all the bus riding time with tons of information about the area. We would highly recommend both the tour and especially Paula to anyone!

It may have been windy, but Paula made my excursion a wonderful way to visit Saint John for the first time. What a lovely lady and very knowledgeable.
We took the Top 10 Tour with "Maid" Marian as our guide, and Phillip her trusty sidekick driver on Sept. 23. It was a wonderful tour! Saw so much and Marian was so knowledgeable and fun, too. Highly recommend!
