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 the Aquila Center for Cruise Excellence in 2007, offering workshops and customized training programs to Tour Operators, Ports and Destinations around the world. As the exclusive training partner of the FCCA (Florida Caribbean Cruise Association), Aquila has spent much time over the past ten years in the Caribbean and Central America, offering certifications and designations 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 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!
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.
Our tour with Harold was engaging, interesting and most important, a really fun outing. Even though we had a full bus, all of our stops were timely and the chowder at The Caves was awesome. Harold's props and banter kept us in good spirits on the way back. Highly recommend the tour and your company!
Mary Anne was our tour guide to St. Martins & Bay of Fundy shore excursion from Serenade of the Seas/Royal Caribbean. She was so friendly and very informative of the region we were touring. So good to actually get out into the Bay and in the big cave and experience the tide slowly rolling in to us. She answered a couple of good questions and was never in a hurry to explain the tour and what it had to offer. Great tour guide and great shore excursion.
I am writing to give kudos to our tour guide Cindi-Lee Campbell. She led our photography tour on St John New Brunswick Canada. She is obviously an accomplished photographer and was able to convey tips and show us great places for photos as well as provide historical and regional info. A wonderful combination. We got some great shots. Thanks Cindi-Lee!
