It is pretty cool to take this boat ride to Cozumel. It is air conditioned and comfortable and reasonably priced.

It was air conditioned. They did walk around selling beverages, water, sodas, etc. Plenty of seating. We thought it was strange on the way to Playa, the screen was showing what to do in cozumel.

We used Ultramar Ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen. The ferry is very well kept, clean, AC inside, as well as TV for entertainment. Great choice!

Take the ferry across to Cozumel. There is entertainment on the 35 minute ferry ride. Rent some scooters and tour this island. You can travel down the east coast taking you to Punta Sur and travel through the Ecologic Reserve. Then travel back to the city via the west coast. You will not be disappointed!

This company offered it services in a huge nd important event in Cozumel in which they didn't organize the timing. Their schedule sucked nd didn't match with the Sacred Mayan Journey that was held in the island two days ago. Many ppl lost the arrival nd departure of the oars because they bought tickets with them. Please don't offer something... More

We used the ferry twice during our last trip. PDC to Cozumel and return. The ferry is clean and comfortable with AC inside. Boarding the ferry in PDC can be a little bit of a challenge for someone who is tall. The opening was only about 4 1/2 ft tall. This might depend on whether high or low tide. On... More

While staying in Playa del Carmen, decided to check out Cozumel, as we had not been there in years. The ferry runs roughly 7am to 9pm every hour. The sales guys at the kiosk suggest to go one way, then buy one way back - no change in cost vs. round-trip. This was great because if you buy round-trip, you... More

Ferry is clean and comfortable. We sat in the middle level that is open. We recommend buying a one way ticket and then another one on the way back. The timing worked out for us to use UltraMar both times. Trip is about 45 minutes including docking time. Really enjoyed the live band, Latin-Ga, on the way to Cozumel!
