Sonora is very safe, including Guaymas. The ferry is to/from Santa Rosalia. Last word in here is that it's running but it's very difficult to get in touch with them to get any info. You will have to inquire locally.

Ferry website is: http://www.ferrysantarosalia.com/ The ferry leaves Santa Rosalia mornings and arrives in Guaymas in the evening. When going to Santa Rosalia, the ferry departs in the evening and gets in to Santa Rosalia in the morning. It does not make the trip everyday of the week - check the schedule and be prepared if it's canceled on any day due to weather or other issues. Arrive Early. The boarding process is very slow. You can bring food or buy onboard. Bring a liter or 2 of your own bottled water.

Melbsmexico, you didn't say where you would be coming to Guaymas from. Friends of ours here in Guaymas/San Carlos have been looking for a boat and made several trips this year from Guaymas down to Puerto Vallarta. They drove and enjoyed the trip and had no problems at all. The highway south from Nogales (15) is also quite safe. We drive down and back every year and drove to Phoenix and back over Christmas. We feel perfectly safe on this highway. Guaymas itself is a safe city. We have no fears about driving in and around Guaymas and the surrounding countryside.
