Prior to this bridge being built in the 1990s, you could only take a ferry back and forth to leave PEI. My husband and I drove on here at the end of April. Not great views and not the prettiest bridge, but it got us across. Upon leaving PEI, you need to pay a $50 bridge toll as a punishment for leaving.

I was excited to drive over the Confederation Bridge between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. A toll of over fifty Canadian dollars ($50.00 Canadian) had to be paid only when a person exited Prince Edward Island; these toll workers had credit card machines for credit card payments. The views of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence were incredible, and it probably took about fifteen (15! minutes of a drive to go from end to end of this bridge. The speed limit was eighty kilometers per hour (80 K.P.H.). I got stuck behind a truck when I exited Prince Edward Island, and there was only a single lane going in each direction. This bridge can be closed down due to inclement weather, so it is smart to check ahead before an individual plans to travel over this bridge.

We had two visits to Charlottetown on a back to back cruise of eastern Canada. So we sailed under the Confederation Bridge in daylight, as well as after dark. We also did a bus tour from Charlottetown to the Marine Rail Park at Borden-Carleton, which is adjacent to the Prince Edward Island end of the Confederation Bridge. From here we got a different view of the bridge, which is nearly 13 kilometres long and the longest bridge in Canada. An impressive engineering feat.

Yes it’s impressive and well-advertised but if it really is such a feat of engineering, very surprised that there’s no visitor center or viewing area at either end of the bridge which welcomes visitors so dramatically to Prince Edward Island.
Concrete barriers mean you can’t see anything, even from a high 4x4.
Drove over from New Brunswick and swam back so glad we didn’t have to pay.
$50 would have been ridiculous!

What a marvel this is, when you are on the ground you get amazing views of the bridge, when you are on the bridge you get amazing views of the surrounding land and ocean.
This is a single lane bridge with very few vehicles, the ones that are on the bridge appear to be enjoying the view / experience as there wasn’t any speeding or pushing. There is no charge for entering P.E.I via the bridge but the toll applies to leave P.E.I (you pay on the P.E.I side), the lady at the toll booth was very friendly, the experience was worth the price.
