We invite you to come to Atlantic Canada on a cruise! Many of the world’s cruise lines sail to the Canada / New England region and anchor in the Bay of Fundy for a call on the Port of Saint John, New Brunswick. When they do, Aquila arranges an array of shore excursions for their guests, from day trips to charming fishing villages on the Bay of Fundy to walking on the ocean floor and experiencing the famous Reversing Rapids.
Aquila has been working with cruise lines to provide tours of Saint John and the Bay of Fundy to their guests since 1989. Our tours are designed to engage cruise guests with the spectacular Bay of Fundy, as well as Saint John’s fascinating history and culture. Our tour guides were nominated among the Best in the World by Dream World Cruise Destination Magazine numerous times since 2003 and they have a contagious enthusiasm for Saint John and the Bay of Fundy.

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!

Aquila is one of the best tour operators that we work with anywhere in the world, and they are excellent models to which other tour operators can aspire.

Our guide Sherry and driver Mike were amazing. Sherry took a few minutes to find out a little bit about us and created a tour that would suit what we were looking for. I could not believe the amount of ground we covered. We never felt rushed but we saw so much. They were fantastic. So much information. So many beautiful places we were able to see. It was the highlight of our cruise.
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.
