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 Port of Saint John, New Brunswick, 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!

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.
