We HAD to experience the drive over the Confederation Bridge. We planned to take the ferry to N.B.($72 round trip) and drive back via the Confederation Bridge (no fee coming INTO PEI) We only got to within 6 cars of boarding so decided to do...More

It was not necessary for me to drive across this bridge as I literally stayed on the New Brunswick side for about 20 minutes before returning to PEI. However, I was curious about the view. I think the view from the New Brunswick side is...More

It's truly a monumental feat. Definitely worth the trip over. It is $46. Anyone who appreciate engineering, science or architecture will quite enjoy this

You can get to Prince Edward Island by either ferry or the bridge. The bridge is 8 miles long. It is free to cross the bridge to PEI, but when you return the fee is $46.50. This is still probably much cheaper that the ferry...More

There are not many 8 mile long bridges to traverse, so this makes it stand out. The visitor centers at both ends are also nice. The $46.50 fee for crossing is a downer, but is the cost of visiting PEI.

This bridge is an engineering feat which provides quick access to PEI from New Brunswick. There is not a cost to go to the island but there is a cost to leave the island so be sure to spend at least the day there.

Saw the video on how the Confederation Bridge was constructed over a 5 year period. It was completed on time due to great teamwork of all those involved in the project. It is 13km long and is a beautiful arched bridge. Great views once you...More

The confederation bridge is a very beautiful piece of architecture and was incredible to drive over. If you do drive over it plan your trip to start in new brunswick and drive into P.E.I (then fly out of P.E.I). This is because it's free from...More

Bob, It's just a bridge. You can hardly see the water from the bridge anyways, as the barriers are pretty high when you "would be sitting lower in a car rather than a van".
