It felt as if you were going the wrong way once you left Moncton. You seem to drive for ever and there are few signs indicating you are getting near the bridge. Finally you get there and the drive over the Confederation becomes anti-climatic.

It was on a Sunday morning when we drove through the Confederation Bridge. The Bridge was long and there was not much traffic on that day. Before we went to the bridge we eat and shop under the bridge. The small mall before the bridge...More

The curved, 12.9 kilometre (8 mile) long bridge is the longest in the world crossing ice-covered water, and continues to endure as one of Canada's top engineering achievements of the 20th century. Definitely exciting crossing the bridge but not much of a view of the...More

I always find it interesting to see anything that is 'the world's only' or ' world's longest' etc. So this is the world's longest bridge built over water. Nice looking bridge. Very simple design. Great views of it from the park in New Brunswick. It...More

Longest in the world for this type of bridge so a must see if visiting New Brunswick. Unfortunately, unless you are in an SUV or van you will not see much as the sides of the bridge are as high as a car roof. Cool...More

We crossed the bridge from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island. Before you go over the bridge make sure to take the turn off to Cape Jourimain, also signposted the last turnoff before the bridge. You will find an information centre, which provides an opportunity...More

Not a problem. Sitting high in an RV you'll have a great view, but watch the road, it's two way traffic.

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".

We are arriving via Confederation bridge from PEI and will be departing on ferry to Digby Nova Scotia. We want to see Hopewell Rocks, possibly Cape Enrage (while waiting for tides to go out again), St Andrews and Grand Mamam Island. Would you have a recommendation on where to stay in these 3 areas. We like Bed and Breakfasts or lodge/inn style accommodation. Bikes or kayaks on thistle or in the area might be nice to have. Are we missing something else that we should be stopping to see? ...More

My husband and I are planning on travelling from Southern Ontario to New Brunswick along the Fundy Coastal Drive and then into Nova Scotia to drive the Cabot Trail and if we have time take a Ferry to PEI and the Confederation bridge back towards Ontario. Our main focus of activities would be as scenic of a root we can get for the drive and anything outdoors from hiking to kayaking to whale watching, shopping at markets, and even a cooking class if we could find one. But, did I mention we have...More

Do you actually leave Port Elgin on Aug 21st and arrive back in Port Elgin on Sep 5th? Are you planning on driving through the States one way and back through Canada the other? Are you interested in National Historic Sites such as the Fortress of Louisbourg or just outdoor activities? Cheers

hi a few comments: I assume you are flying from Vancouver in which case it looks like you will be taking the red-eye to Toronto then on to Halifax based on you arriving at 2:00 pm; if that is the case driving to Peggy's Cove is really optimistic if you get any jet lag. consider staying in Halifax and enjoy walking/ dining on the waterfront. Then a suggestion is to combine a trip to Peggy;s Cove with going to Lunenberg they are close together. Going to Lunenberg in the morning then Cape...More
