                 It's pretty simple, the trip going to the island is either early in the morning at 7:00 or 12:30 in the afternoon, same as when you're from Rapu - Rapu going back to Legazpi. There are 3 different motor boats traveling back and forth; they used to call it "motor". It anchors at Legazpi City port. From Legazpi, there is only one motor boat in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, and from Rapu - Rapu sometimes there are two in the morning and always one in the afternoon. The afternoon trip takes longer time than the morning trip for it passes to the other barangays of Rapu - Rapu for passengers going to the Centro and other barangays while the morning trip goes directly to the Centro.
