Port Townsend is the terminus for one WA State ferry route connecting to Coupeville on Whidbey Island.
This is the quickest and easiest way to travel north from Port Townsend.
From Coupeville, one can travel north on Whidbey Island, across the scenic Deception Pass Bridge toward Anacortes WA, and then east onto the mainland without the need for another ferry.
Or, take the turnoff to Anacortes and catch a ferry to other San Juan Islands. From Friday Harbor, ferries run to both Sidney and Victoria in BC, Canada.

Thankfully, the WA State Ferry system is fairly extensive, in order to negotiate the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Salish Sea, and the Puget Sound.
You can certainly travel east to Seattle by car if you don’t mind traveling south, crossing the Tacoma Narrows bridge (toll), and then north to Seattle. This is cheaper than paying the ferry toll, but it is also a pain for both your backside and the time in your vacation schedule.
Instead, drive by car to Bainbridge Island or to Bremerton, and catch ferries to Seattle from either of these towns. They both dock at the downtown Seattle terminal.
Another ferry to use if your destination is east and north is the Kingston to Edmonds ferry.
