We recently took a New England and Canada cruise that stopped in Charlottetown, PEI. As part of our PEI tour, we stopped at Confederation Bridge -- it was something to see! Quite a long and tall bridge over a wide stretch of water. Then, in...More

There are only two ways to reach P.E.I - a ferry or this bridge, which was constructed since my last visit to PEI many decades ago. As another TripAdvisor said, what a neat experience! The views are fantastic. This was one time when I didn't...More

Well maintained, smooth driving. We always took the ferry as a kid so this is a nice change from that. Average 10-15 minute drive over the bridge. A lot of travelers aren't aware you don't pay to get on the island but have to pay...More

Washrooms or rest stations are available on both sides. A comfortable 12 minute drive across. The concrete barrier on the sides of the bridge limit the view.

Incredible views and leaves you in awe at the length and height. Quite a spectacular thing to see crossing into PEI.

Definitely a must do thing if you are in the area. The bridge is very long and very windy! The only downside is the price of the toll on returning (almost $50!!!)

I had the opportunity to drive across the Confederation Bridge on a recent trip to Prince Edward Island. There was no toll to go onto the island, but there is a rather expensive one to get off. Very cool structural design, and it is the...More

Tell the kids that this bridge takes approx 10 minutes to cross. When they don't believe you, have them time it. lol Be aware it costs approx $50 per carload to leave PEI on the bridge. Free to enter though if you're leaving by plane...More

I'm very afraid of heights. Is this bridge for me? I would be sitting lower in a car rather than a van. Bob

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".
