Salmon Hatchery & Mendenhall Glacier without a tour

I am planning to visit the Salmon Hatchery (2-3 miles away from downtown Juneau) and then head on to Mendenhall Glacier and spend 2-3 hours there and back to downtown. Does anyone know how to catch a ride from the Hatchery to the Glacier besides the City Bus (Capital Transit)? The City bus takes too long since both stops are pretty far away from those attractions and the last MGT glacier shuttle departs the glacier at 6pm. My cruise ship doesn't arrive until 2pm but I want to stay at the Glacier for a longer time. Is it easy to get a taxi ride from the Hatchery to the Glacier?

Thanks a lot.

See the answer to your PM for ideas, but in general terms, the taxi can schedule a pickup when they drop you off, or alternatively the staff at the hatchery can call a cab for you if you ask nicely.

Happy Alaska Travels!
