What a great view from the side of the water and from the bridge! Everywhere, on both sides, everything is nicely explained, to lean how much effort was deployed to realize this wonder of human craftmaship

This bridge to Prince Edward Island is a landmark of the area. It is miles long and the ocean scenery is wonderful. Funny- they let you drive over to PEI free, and make you pay a high price to come back to NB. Hahahaha. Guess...More

Opened in 1997, Confederation Bridge is, without question, a true marvel of Canadian architecture and engineering. It has an impressive length of 12.9 kilometers and connects Prince Edward Island to the mainland via New Brunswick. Thus the bridge serves a very practical purpose, sure, but...More

Awesome engineering marvel but not very scenic as you cannot see much while on the bridge to New Brunswick.

We drove across here in the evening and it was beautiful! You get a view of mainland NB and PEI. but you cant stop anywhere on the bridge for picture taking. It is still a breathtaking drive and PEI is gorgeous year round!

An easy drive from NB you don’t see too much while driving. There is a good information center and lots of shops as soon as you get off the bridge. You pay when you leave the island.

This is a remarkable feat of engineering! If you get a chance to experience this bridge from the Prince Edward Island side and drive to New Brunswick, don't miss the exit on the right side immediately as you exit the bridge. It will take you...More

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".
