Northumberland Strait is famous for stormy swells and winter winds. But long before the Confederation Bridge rose up from the shoreline, inhabitants and travellers used Cape Jourimain as the starting point for their perilous journeys to cross it. Guides share stories about the area while taking you along trails and boardwalks to a 4-storey observation tower. There you’ll see history laid out like a picture postcard, allowing you to imagine yourself making the trip in ice boats that carried visitors and mail to Prince Edward Island for more than 100 years. Under the bridge you marvel at the construction techniques as traffic rumbles steadily overhead. See how the environment has adapted around this famous crossing place while gaining an appreciation for its colourful past.
