Interesting place. Wasn't sure but glad I went. Can see entire place in 1-2 hours. About 20 minute taxi drive ($40) from downtown Ketchikan. Totem poles are awesome. Great gift shop and memorabilia area.

No but you can take the city bus on the main street. There should be a bus stop right in front of the coffee shop, across the street from where the ships arrive.this will save you money.

For sure there is shuttle bus to the park and there are some taxis around Ketchikan. There is no problem with transportation.
