You mean you can not or don't want to go back through Syria? Because overland that is the only option. Otherwise it will be a flight, no ferries.

I was hopeful there will be any ferries especially that crossing borders is both money and time consuming or maybe I didn't know the right route, I went from Antalya to Antakya then to Aleppo and finally to Beirut

Are there buses that go directly to Turkey or airline tickets that can cost less than $150?

Too bad man, I did the same route (train Aleppo to Latakia, then onwards to border with Lebanon and to Tripoli) and had no problems, nice people etc.
Maybe you can try and take a shared taxi to Damascus and a bus back to Turkey from there. That's the best route and the border crossing used most by foreigners as well (on the Beirut to Damascus route that is).

Good luck and take care
