With that out of the way, I made a few calls to see if a trip to Bais was still sensible. It's not a very long bus ride from the city, but the main point of going was to check out the dolphins. Unfortunately, although the resort I had planned on staying at was open, I learned that due to the weather forecast, the boats would be dry docked the whole day (and possibly the next) so as it turns out, hopping on a bus would prove pointless.
That idea scrapped and on to the next destination - Apo Island. The waters were pretty rough on this day but not enough to keep the boats ashore, thankfully. I took the bus to the Malapatay market in Zamboanguita. The ride only took all of 45 minutes, but it was a shame that it wasn't Wednesday - the day when the market comes to life. Just as well, I only had time to change into shorts in a nearby shed (again, the waters were rough and I didn't feel like getting my jeans soaked) before the boat arrived to take me to the island.
