Seeking water crossing from Upper Peninsula (Michigan) to Washington Island (Door County, Wisconsin).

I am planning a cycling trip traveling counterclockwise around Lake Michigan. I would really like to go from the Shingleton State Forest Area in Michigan (Garden, Fairport, Big Bay de Noc) to Washington Island in Wisconsin (Door County), somehow across the water. Basically, I think it'd be super to cycle down Door County. I have Googled, and Googled, to no avail.
It's about 15 miles from Fairport to Washington Island, as the crow swims. I'd be perfectly happy to pay a private captain to take me across, but wouldn't want to cycle all the way down to Garden or Fairport without knowing if I could find someone. I hope to have a friend with me, so max two people, two bikes.
Thoughts? Ideas? Alms?
