Shore Excursions

High Res Low TideWe 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 can’t wait to share it with you!

To assist in your cruise planning, the following cruise lines call on the Saint John & the Bay of Fundy, and Aquila is proud to be their primary shore excursion operator!

When choosing your cruise, be sure your itinerary includes a chance to anchor in the Bay of Fundy and visit the Port of Saint John, New Brunswick. Explore the wide range of tours being offered in Saint John, from city sightseeing tours to active excursions such as hiking, biking and paddling! As the principal shore excursion operator in Saint John, it’s likely that Aquila will be looking after you on your tour, but please note that you must book your tours directly with your cruise line, and you should sign up early, as the most popular tours sell out quickly!

Testimonials

We took the St Martins and Bay of Fundy tour in October 2019, Phyllis was our tour guide and is a wealth of information and a lot of fun to interact with. I had been to the Bay of Fundy previously but I got more information about the Bay and local areas than I ever dreamed of. Her knowledge really made the tour, she is a "keeper".

We arrived for our tour 5/28 our tour guide was Bonnie and she was absolutely amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable and it was non stop information. Telling us history past and present. But the real treat was all of the photos, stories and information sheets which she supplied. It was a most enjoyable experience. Thank you.
