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 to view the bridge from a reasonably high gantry ( slightly disappointing because the trees obscure the view of the first section of the bridge)
There is also a very interesting exhibition and film of the bridge build
When you come to cross the bridge it is seriously impressive. It was built 21 years ago and has two rising sections to allow ships underneath along its 12.9km
Best of all from NB to PEI there is no toll ( it is Can $48 the other way)

As we were taking the ferry both ways we only made the trip to see the bridge. Really impressive. The area before the bridge is a nice place to shop and eat. I have driven across it in years gone by and was disappointed that we couldn't see the water or views from the car due to cement walls, and there is no where to stop on the bridge.

Went across for a day trip into PEI. The Bridge is definitely an engineering marvel. It's incredibly long, it took a bit over eight minutes to cross at the 80 km/h speed limit on the bridge. There is a toll, but only when you're leaving PEI it's free to cross over from New Brunswick into PEI. Going across the bridge once is something every Canadian should experience at least once I think.

Drove across yesterday and wow it's a long bridge. the history of the building of the bridge really puts into perspective of how constructively sound it is.

We took the bridge both ways during our trip to PEI. While its pretty pricey ($48), you only pay going off-island and still less expensive than the ferry. Its very convenient, taking about 15-20 minutes.

We had one issue paying our toll. We decided the lines were shorter on the automated lanes, so tried to use our credit card in them. It kept asking for a PIN number and I don't have one. I do for my Debit card , but not for my credit card. We tried the help button. They said to retry it. We did. Rejected. So we had to back up the line of traffic behind us and go over and cut into the manned lanes. Embarrassing! Then the card still didn't work. We used another just fine.

Our bank said our card got locked for too many retries and we'd have to wait 24 hours for it to unlock. So my tip is to use the manned lanes even if the automated ones are shorter.
