Never been on a bridge like this. It was pretty cool driving across so much water. I would certainly suggest you stay a night or two in PEI if you go because it's a pretty hefty toll just to drive across and come back. Cost us $50.25 to do so last summer but at least we had a couple of nights in PEI

A fun and easy way to get to PEI. I thought it would be scary to cross but I felt safe the entire time. The ride wasn’t that long. They play to tourist with stores right at the end of the bridge.

If going to PEI, it is free to use the bridge. I would highly recommend a stop at Cape Jourimain right before the bridge.

The bridge connects PEI to New Brunswick. Good way to travel between two provinces if you don't want to fly. Park nearby allows good views of Bridge and makes for a nice photo backdrop.

This is a bridge. Yes it's a big bridge and quite long, but at the end of the day, it's a bridge. Kinda neat to see and/or drive over with a little tourist area on the Island next door and a small park where you can take some pictures, but it takes only about 5 minutes to say, yep it's a big bridge. Worth a quick stop if in the area, but wouldn't go out of my to just to see it.

Impressive bridge with good photo opportunities from the south side. I don't recall seeing anywhere to stop as we crossed the bridge. Good visitor information centre with bathrooms on the north eastern side.

This 8-mile box girder bridge carrying the Trans-Canada Highway across the Northumberland Strait links Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, and opened on 31 May 1997. It is also Canada’s longest bridge and the world’s longest over ice-covered water. But not when I crossed it from PEI in June.☺ Construction had begun in 1993 and cost C$1.3. Many residents were adamant against its construction as ferries to PEI were a long-standing tradition. In April 2022, the PEI legislature voted unanimously to rename the bridge Epekwitk Crossing, but needs approval by the Canadian federal government to approve the name change. Epekwitk is the traditional indigenous Mi’kmaq name for PEI.

This bridge is an engineering marvel and a work of art. I was nonetheless quite surprised that it only consists of two travel lanes. The toll for what is presumably a round trip is collected when going from Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick. Be sure to use a credit card to pay your toll. I paid the toll using U.S. currency. The conversion rate at the time was $1.00 US = $1.35 CA, but I was charged $46.00 US, a discount of only 10%.

The bridge itself is actually not as dramatic and exciting to drive over as I would have thought (at least on a relatively clear day in the summer) but I'm writing this review to let people know that the best place we found to get great photos of the bridge is the nature center on an island just off New Brunswick that's accessible in both direction. If you don't mind paying $5, take half an hour and get off, then walk no more than 100 yards from the parking lot to the first view point.

Was very interesting to drive across a bridge that you couldn't see the other end of. An engineering marvel.

I love bridges, so I was quite happy to finally get the opportunity to cross the Confederation bridge. Once we were in PEI, we stopped to take some pics of this beautiful bridge.
