Several weeks ago when I was visiting Ketchikan for my grandson's high school graduation, I encountered a young woman sitting outside the airport crying.  She was not aware that she had to pay for a ferry ride to town.  She was humiliated to have to ask me for assistance.  To the power's that be - Please, please, please let visitor's to Ketchikan know before hand that there is a fee to utilize the ferry.  I don't believe that this was an isolated incident.
