There is no ferry that runs directly between Cancun and Cozumel. The only ferry runs from Playa del Carmen, which is about an hour's drive south of Cancun. The two passenger ferries, run by Cruceros Maritimos and Ultramar, cost approximately 163 pesos each way per adult and 97 pesos per child and takes 25-45 minutes each way to cross, depending on water conditions and passenger load. The lone car ferry is run by Transcaribe out of the Calica port at Punta Venado, just south of Playa del Carmen, and costs about $80.00 each way. The trip takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The Puerto Morelos ferry is no longer running.
HOW TO GET TO THE COZUMEL FERRY DOCK
Most people get from the Cancun Airport to the Cozumel ferry dock via a pre-reserved Airport Transfer. Once in Cozumel, you can catch a taxi to your Cozumel hotel. There is also a bus that runs to Playa del Carmen from Cancun.
The other great way to get to Cozumel is via a Cozumel Tour. You can do an on-your own tour of Cozumel for only the cost of the transportation - just $46.00 per person - it's a great deal. If you're going over for the day, see Cozumel Tours.
When coming over to the mainland from Cozumel, the easiest way to get to the pier is via taxi. If you'll be renting a car, you'll need to take the vehicle ferry.
