Took the ferry to Cozumel and "entertainment" if you can call it that was terrible! I wanted a nice ferry ride up on the upper deck, instead I had to listen to two people who thought they could sing, belt out as loud as possible to the loud music. To top it off, they walked around asking for tips! I... More

Going to Cancun is a must to visit Isla Mujeres and the way to go there is by this ferry service. Ships are fairly new, clean and they look safe and well maintained. The fare is cheap and the travel time is short

There is a small bar/snacks on board if you must. Nice way to get to Isla Mujeres. Clean, A/C below, usually on the way back they have some sort of talented musician. They send a can around near the end. Tip if you feel good about it.

The round trip cost is $19 per person to go to the island and back. The ferry gets you there in about 20 minutes. I suggest to ride on top of the boat on the outdoor deck, you get way more fresh air outside. The inside is hot, humid, and smells bad.

I've never had a bad experience on Ultramar. Their ferries are clean, smooth, and cool. Air-conditioning works nice. The docks are well maintained and fares are reasonable.

We used this ferry to get to Isla Mujeres from playa Tortugas. The staff are really helpful and the whole process is made really easy. They run about every 30 minutes either way. On the way there we sat on the top deck where there was a man in traditional mexican clothing playing the guitar. Then on the way back... More

We used it to get from Cancunto Isla Mujeres. This whole business is very organized and will get you in the island on time. Word of advice, sit on the top. We did that when returning and if you are in time for a Mexican sunset then you are in luck. Also the very best part of the afternoon ride,... More

Love the Ultramarine Ferry! It's a fantastic way to travel between the mainland and Isla. The Ferry terminal on both sides offers a selection of food and drinks. The boats are clean and comfortable and have always been right on time every time we have used them.

Easy on & off. Clean and new looking. Price was reasonable and they seemed attentive to safety. The luggage enter on the rear plank and is stowed for the crossing. The crossing is quick. We had rough seas on our return and the boat was fairly stable. No complaints.

Thank MaddyLibby
