You will need to take a bus to Lilo-An first then a ferry to Dumaguete.

From Dumaguete, take a ferry to Siquijor.

As for Apo, note very sure about this but you can reach Apo Island from Siquijor. For sure you can reach Siquijor from Dumaguete from I do not know the way.

I don't know about Apo, but the trip from Oslob to Siquijor will take about 3 1/2-5 hours, including waiting time for buses and ferries. 3 1/2 might be a bit optimistic.

It's a about two hours or so to take a Ceres Liner from Oslob to the terminal in Dumaguete. Sometimes a little more time. This includes the ferry ride between the two islands. There are shorter and quicker itineraries, but you would need a local to help you find the ferry terminals and jeepneys. Been there, done that. Take the bus.

About a 10 minute tricycle ride from the Ceres terminal to the ferry terminal. Depending on traffic of course.

About an hour from Dumaguete to Siquijor or Larena. Then, another 15 minutes to 1/2 hour to the resorts on the south end of the island.

You are going to take a half a day to do it.
