camogli to cinque terre:train or ferry

We are going to Italy next week and one of our destinations is Camogli. We want to go to the CinqueTerre, but how? We have a car but would prefer to leave it behind for this portion. Does anyone know about train or ferry schedules for this area. I have read prior post about Le Spezia to CT --but what about from the western area?
Thanks!

From my map, Camogli looks to be northwest of Santa Margherita & Portofino. Don't know if there's a ferry but did find the following by searching the train schedule.
This is from the website for Italy train schedules at:
www.fs-on-line.com

Entered “Camogli” and “Monterosso” (the first CT town coming from the northwest) and here’s what I came up with.

Once you get to Monterosso, you have several options on how to visit the other Cinque Terre towns. You can walk – Vernazza is the next town – or you can take the boat or take the local train (and again, can check that schedule on the ‘fs-on-line’ site.)

Camogli-S. Fruttuoso to Monterosso

-- 9:04 am -- Arrv-10:15 am (duration = 1 hr, 11 min)
-- 9:48 am -- Arrv-10:59 am (duration = 1 hr, 11 min)
-- 11:17 am - Arrv-12:12 pm (duration = 55 min)

Above is just a few of the runs that are going to Monterosso.

Also forgot to include in my prior post a decent website for the CT:

We spent time in Camogli and never rented a car the whole time. We took the train to the Cinque Terre. The train service was very good. I'd rather take the train any day than rent a car in that area!! Enjoy!!

Thanks so much for the info-- I contacted the hotel where we are staying in Camogli also and they have the times of the ferry etc.
Ciao
