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.

A fantastic tour with a superb guide, Keith Lyons!
Outstanding tour to St. Martins. Fay Neilson, our guide, was tremendous! Chowder is good, scenery is awesome (we saw a moose), local art is enticing. Bring a hand towel to wipe sandy feet, or beach shoes for walking on rocky beach. We had a great time and highly recommend. The bus ride to St. Martins is a major part of this tour, so small, toddler-aged children who might be impatient to move might not find this tour the best option for them. Everyone else will love it!
My husband and I loved our excursion of Bay of Fundy Whale and Wildlife Watching. Our tour guide was Sue and she was great. Very funny and entertaining as well as answered all questions. Made the tour fun and very enjoyable. Our marine biologist on our boat, Danielle was also fabulous. Extremely informative and love the information she provided while out looking at the different wildlife at the Bay of Fundy.

It may have been windy, but Paula made my excursion a wonderful way to visit Saint John for the first time. What a lovely lady and very knowledgeable.
