I came through Alaska on a cruise and this by far was the most fun I had. The guides are knowledgeable and they made the experience fun and educational. Don't worry about getting cold, you warm up really quick once you start swimming.

Yes, it depends on the length of your stay in port. I believe the snorkel trip is only a three hour excursion, but for us, we were only in Ketchikan from 7am- 12pm.
