This wasn’t too special of a bridge. It was quite long (12.9km I believe) but not too many views as there are rails to keep you from looking over. It was $55 to return on the bridge (van and tent trailer)

This 12.9 kilometer (8 mile) engineering wonder links Prince Edward Island to mainland New Brunswick. Confederation Bridge is the longest curved crossing in the world. It was a thill to drive from Cape Jourimain, New Brunswick to Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island. It opened May 21, 1997 after four years of construction. The bridge's graceful curves are not only a beautiful feature but there to ensure driver attentiveness. To minimize vehicle spray during wet weather, a special mixture was used for the bridge surface. A concrete barrier 1.1 meters in height acts as a wind break and contains 7000 drain ports. We opted to use the bridge rather than the ferry when leaving the Island and paid the 47 dollar round trip fee.

It takes 10 minutes to cross the bridge but you can’t see much of the view because of the concrete blocks that line the road. It costs nothing to go towards PEI. It costs $47 to leave it. An unique experience.

We just arrived on PEI via this bridge, and enjoyed a short stop on the NB side to take photos of it. The bridge itself is a fantastic feat of engineering, spanning around 18 kilometres and with a raised section in the middle to accommodate the larger vessels that may be sailing beneath it. An 80kmh speed limit keeps things safe on its single lane each way. I do like to look at the views from bridges though, and with this one you can’t see much because of the raised concrete barriers on each side of the carriageways. Probably a good feature to keep the Driver’s eyes on the road, but a shame for the passengers.

We took the ferry over to PEI and were planning to return that way, but as luck would have it, we went to the charming teeny town of Victoria and so we were closer to the bridge. So glad we took it! It is a spectacular sight and, yes, better than the non-views from it, but even so, it was fun to drive over it, just knowing it was 8 miles over the water! (only took 9 min!)
Much faster (and cheaper) to return. The ferry is ok but takes 75 minutes not including getting there early and a long time to unload. Unless you're coming from that direction, I recommend the bridge--what a trip, and great pix from either side!
