The ride on this ferry is much smoother than the other ferries we took to Isla de Mujeres. While we went to Cozumel Ultramar was also the better ferry of the two we took. The prices are reasonable, the ride smoother, and snacks are offered for purchase on board.

Overall it was a fun ride over to the island. To make it worth your money, go for the day! Plenty of fun sites to see and little vendors on the streets. It's a great way to see the Carribean waters without having to experience the rough water. The scheduling was a little confusing, check your tickets to make sure... More

It is a bit steep but it is a high speed ferry to Isla de Mujeres. ON the way back there was a guitarist playing Beatles tunes which made the whole day perfect !

We took the Ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel and back. Getting tickets were easy - less than $13 (each way), payable in USD or Pesos. The ferry was on time 8:00am departure. Arrived Cozumel at 8:45am. They even have smelling salts on board for those who have motion sickness (like my daughter). We bought our ticket for the... More

We have taken the Ultramar many times over the years and they continue to do a great job transporting the many passengers to and from Isla Mujeres. Staff is always helpful and polite and reliable. They are a great value as we'll.

Motor blew out and was sitting in the ocean during high tide for almost 1 hour. A little unnerving to say the least.

Trip out was fine, trip back from the Island we came into a different port and the captain didn't seem to sure how to bring the boat back in. There were no incidents or concerns, just strange. Good trip, boats are decently maintained (and looked much better than the other options we saw limp into port)..
