We drove across here in the evening and it was beautiful! You get a view of mainland NB and PEI. but you cant stop anywhere on the bridge for picture taking. It is still a breathtaking drive and PEI is gorgeous year round!

An easy drive from NB you don’t see too much while driving. There is a good information center and lots of shops as soon as you get off the bridge. You pay when you leave the island.

Not impressed by too many bridges. I've traveled the bridge to get to the "Keys" and enjoyed that bridge, but what I most enjoyed about the Confederation Bridge is that you can take these cool photos underneath it when you stop RIGHT before getting on...More

Quite an engineering feat! It's about 8 miles long. It makes access to Prince Edward Island easy. At the mainland end are signs warning you that you are approaching it, with a turn around option. They also warn you, that while going over to P.E.I....More

Took this bridge to get from Nova Scotia to PEI. This is a must for any travellers by road. It was awesome and fascinating and the teeniest bit scary as well. You are tens of meters above the ocean for about 8 miles. Informative and...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".
