Somewhat of an oddity and not necessarily really a tourist site. It is an interesting experience to drive across, but it is better to look at from either side, not during the trip. The barriers are a bit high for most car passengers to see over, though the best part is the rise in the middle. We were lucky enough... More

Confederation Bridge is the world's longest bridge over ice-covered waters. The two-lane, multi-span, box girder, toll bridge is 11 meters wide and spans a 12.9 kilometer stretch of the Northumberland Strait carrying the Trans-Canada Highway between Borden-Carleton in Prince Edward Island and Cape Jourimain in New Brunswick. The bridge was built by Strait Crossing Development Incorporated, a private consortium, and... More

$46 toll for a car. Well maintained and safe. In the winter, you see the icebergs in the strait. Beautiful view and quick 14 km bridge ride to PEI.

As mentioned on the title itself, "Awesome engineering, expensive Toll." Totally unaware of the toll charges ahead, I was pretty shocked to know that it would cost us $46.50 just to cross the bridge (two ways paid while leaving PEI). However, The trip to PEI as a whole was pretty amazing experience. And of course, bridge engineering is a beauty.

We ferried over from Nova Scotia to PEI and drove the Confederation Bridge back to NB on our eastern RV excursion. What a wonderful experience. The view is spectacular and I used my cell phone to video a lot of the way so I could replay it for family back at home. Next time if we get the opportunity, it... More

Living in PEI or being close to someone in PEI makes paying the bridge toll expensive. I lived there for years and found it very difficult to pay every time I wanted to visit family in NB. All that said, the bridge is fantastic and so much better than the old days when you had to take the ferry. I... More

this is what every church should do, free to enter pay to exit hahaha. no pictures signs makes one work at making a memory of the beautiful scenery... get a gps with video component so you can take a video... cross only if you intend to stay in PEI for a while because the cost to leave is crazy!

Have a cottage in the Bayfield area and never tire of this marvellous bridge. With the sun shining or a grey day each gives you such a different perspective. No longer have to wait for a ferry you can go to the "Island" when ever you wish. Meeting friends on either side of the bridge a shuttle service is available... More

I have to go to PEI once a year but my schedule is variable so it is so nice to be able to arrive at any time to make the crossing. I also go to Victoria BC once a year and there my life is controlled by the ferry schedule. So was it before the bridge. I usually make the... More

Beautiful bridge connects PEI to New Brunswick, Canada. About 8 miles long. We traveled from Borden area to Bayfield. Interesting engineering feat!
