Your "someone" is wrong.
I was in Juneau a few years ago, at a car rental office, and overheard a customer, ARGUING with the owner about the "Marine Highway". They were insisting that they were going to "drive" to Skagway, since it was on the map with a dotted line. I'm not sure if they got it, but the owner just wasn't making any headway with their fixed idea.
I've rented cars in most ports. It is a great option if you want something different, and no way to get lost.
Just do your homework and make certain you map out what you wish to see and do before you get there and have plans.
