The Kitsap Airporter won't get you all the way to PT. The best way without a car (and not knowing anyone in the area to pick you up) is as described in the PTGuide link above.

From SeaTac Airport to Bainbridge Island-Seattle Ferry to Port Townsend:

From door #2 on the ground level, take the Link Light Rail north to Pioneer Square Station bus tunnel. Walk on Yesler downhill to Alaskan Way and take a right to the ferry terminal. Take ferry across to Bainbridge Island (see WSDOT Ferry Fares for current rates). Pick up the Kitsap Transit bus #90 to Poulsbo. Transfer to Jefferson Transit bus #7 to the Haines St. Park-n-Ride in Port Townsend.

What time do you arrive at SeaTac? The method above is certainly a day-time endeavor.

You can also take Kenmore Air and they will drop you off at the end of Adams Street downtown.

Good luck,

chuck

I guess the foot ferry didn't get off the ground again. Wasn't it going to start up one more time, with a new boat?

The Port of Port Townsend was given a grant to purchase a foot ferry but nothing specific has been worked out. The primary stumbling block is operating costs.

There is also a private effort which is mired in red-tape:

The foot ferry project is moving ahead - the port has selected an operator but now needs to have the boat built so anything is something like 18 months away, at best.

Pala, I didn't quite understand your Kenmore Air comment but I did not understand they had any (direct) connections to Port Townsend, alas...

I've seen Kenmore dropping someone off between Nifty Fifties and April Fool's. It has been a while and I didn't actually check with them. I could be wrong.
