Yes, there is a ferry from Amsterdam to IJmuiden. It's called the Fast Flying Ferry and it takes about 25 minutes. You can get the ferry from De Ruyterkade - just behind Amsterdam Centraal station, at pier 14. To get to Centraal Station from the flower market (Bloemenmarkt) you can get various trams - depending on which end of the market you are starting from.
It's far more attractive than the alternative, which would be to get a train (or metro) to Sloterdijk and then take the bus Regioliner 82 to IJmuiden -that would take about an hour all up and would not be much cheaper.
Here is a page about the ferry:
And this is the official information page, but it is in Dutch:
According to that page, it is € 5,30 for a one-way ticket.
