Wild & Free Travel created this epic drone selfie from Cape Split in eastern Canada.  The Cape is a peninsula which extends into the Bay of Fundy from Nova Scotia.  The cliffs here are in a constant state of erosion and can be dangerous. The entire cape was privately owned until recently, when it was purchased by the provincial government.  The Bay of Fundy separates Nova Scotia from New Brunswick, the two most populous of Canada's three Maritime Provinces.

Confederation Bridge linking PEI to the rest of Canada


Barely 20 years old, Confederation Bridge is one of the most well known spans in Canada.  Opened in 1997, the bridge connects the Maritime provinces of Prince Edward Island with New Brunswick.  The bridge's total length is just under 13 km (8 mi.), and it's built in over 40 segments.  Built at a cost of over C$1B, it's also known as the "Fixed Link", and is the only connection between PEI and the mainland.  In this drone video from johnmacneill2471, you can check out the bridge from a bird's eye perspective.

Given the area's historical dependence on shipping and fishing, lighthouses have long been important part of the landscape of Canada's Maritime Provinces.  Peggys Cove Lighthouse (sometimes called Peggys Point) was built in 1915 and quickly became one of the most recognized spots in Nova Scotia and indeed in all of Canada.   In this video, contributor and pilot Nō Ka 'Oi Drone Guys filmed this iconic looking lighthouse with a drone.  This aerial footage was featured in various Canadian national media outlets.

Check out this drone video from an idyllic spot in Canada's Nova Scotia province, compliments of contributor and drone pilot James Goode.  Blue Rocks is situated on the Atlantic coast of the province, near the town of Lunenberg.  The coastline here is fantastically complicated, with countless bays and islands.  It's one of the reasons why Nova Scotia is home to so many well known lighthouses; without them, navigating its coastline was next to impossible without modern positioning technology.
