Here's a few places to start
washington state ferries wsdot.wa.gov/ferries
If you want to passenger ferry to Victoria,Clipper is your best bet
Car from Seattle
MV Coho From Port Angeles to Victoria
Car from Seattle,drive to Tsawwassen and BC Ferries to Victoria or Nanaimo
Where are you planning to go on Vancouver Island? If just to Victoria, then you don't really need a car.
Also check with the car rental company about out-of-country travel.
If you are planning on bring a rental car into Canada, check that the insurance etc. is valid outside the US.
If you are staying in Nanoose Bay (Time share?)IMO you would want to have a car
