Go to the nearest vaporetto station where you need to buy tickets and ask for the timetable and line to San Michele. Ask also for the return timetable. It is easiest for you to buy the day ticket to travel at any line. You can get exact answer when you know where is your starting point. In lack of time you can also ask for water taxi. It is not cheap but it is the fastest way.
