Saint John Shore Excursions

Aquila is a tour operator with more than 30 years experience providing best-in-class Saint John region shore excursions to the cruise lines that call on Port Saint John, on the shores of the beautiful Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Canada.

Our region has rich heritage landmarks from each of our founding cultures including the Wolastoqiyik peoples and French, English, American and Irish explorers and immigrants.

We also benefit from a diverse natural environment, including ocean vistas, mighty rivers, ancient forests, and even the first North American member of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network: Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark.

We take more than 60,000 passengers on tour each year – giving them authentic Atlantic Canadian experiences designed to tap into their spirit of discovery!

Our team is passionate about the cruise industry, our home port, and providing exceptional service to cruise lines and their 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 our region with you!
