Ferry from Cochin to Kumarakom - info please

Could someone please tell me how I catch the public ferry from Cochin to Kumarakom? I'm on a budget and am hoping the ferry is a scenic route. Also, as a single traveller, I can not afford a houseboat, so how do I get from Kumarakom to Alleppey by water?

I leave in 2 weeks so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Deepak,

Thank you for replying.

I'm a little confused. How would I get from Cochin to Kottayam?

Is the ferry to Muhamma on a scenic route? The reason I ask is because I can't afford the traditional backwater cruise so I thought that taking a ferry to go around, I will cover the same waters...bad idea?

Thanks again Deepak!

Serenity

Kumarakom -Alleppey is, as Deepak mentioned just alarge expanse of water. Kottayam is abit in the interior, and you will need to pass through canals to reach there-much more fun, and scenic. Kottayam is about 7-8 kms from Kumarakom, BTW, and there are plenty of trains that connect you to Ernakulam(Cochin) or buses to Alleppey.
