The ferry lines that run fro Playa to Cozumel are operated by very professional staff and feel quite secure. If you time it just right you can even witness some pretty awesome sunsets!

We tried all 3 ferry operations between Cozumel and Playa del Carmen during our 10-day stay in the area. This was by far the MOST professional, attentive, organized, clean and punctual opeartion. All 3 companies charge the exact sames rates; but this one offered a few extras like free coffee, tea and water service and a better all around experience... More

Bought our ticket at the PDC dock for first ride into Cozumel. The ferry is clean and the time goes quick. We didnt know what time or if we would use this ferry returning to PDC but we did. Quick ride, was the way to go.

You can get a cheaper ride from the other companies (by a few pesos) but the extra money is worth it with Ultramar. Newer, cleaner, much more comfortable. Great bar service, nice AC, always on time.

We took the ultra mar ferry four times during our two weeks on the island. We took early morning (630) and midday as well as evening ferries. Every trip it was on time departing, clean and efficient. Initially we were uncomfortable leaving our luggage at the back until we realized that the deck hands lock the area with steel doors... More

The Ultramar Ferry was great. Very clean and very professional staff. If you want to rent at buggy, car or bike, do not use Rooster's. These folks will try to find different ways to add more charges to you rental. They are the worst!!

Many kiosks in Playa Del Carmen sell the tickets, make sure when you go to the ferry terminal you getin the right queue as there are a couple of different ferry companies, Ultra Mar is the one with...
