Our Living Lab

A Living Lab is where lessons are learned and where we get real-life examples of excellence in action. Port Saint John is Aquila’s Living Lab, where we have been operating shore excursions for more than 30 years. Our team is passionate about the cruise industry, our home port, and providing excellent service to cruise lines and their guests.


Our tours are designed to provide engaging experiences for our cruise guests. Walk on the ocean floor as you explore the Bay of Fundy. Savour a cup of fresh seafood chowder. Step inside the oldest continuing market in Canada for a taste of dulse and a chance to meet the locals. Chat with a fisherman by his lobster traps at the harbour. Join us to discover the best of Saint John, led by award-winning tour guides whose enthusiasm is contagious. We can’t wait to share it with you!
