Thus saith the Lord: Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. Acts 2:1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there was a sound from Heaven as a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

They were instructed not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for the gift my Father promised. John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit. They were baptized by God the Father. This is just a quick paraphrase, the verse is Acts 1:4. NIV

Annanias apparently baptized the apostle Saul (Paul) Acts 22:16 (22:12-16). It is not stated about the other apostles. In fact, it is not stated for the vast majority of people mentioned in the New Testament.
The Bible never mentions Jesus baptizing anyone. He was more about telling people about God. In fact very little is said about baptism outside of John the baptist and Christs own baptism. The bible never emphasises water baptism. Its possible the apostles were never baptised in water. it was never a big part of either Jesus or Pauls ministries.
John 3:22, 26 and John 4:1-2 state that Jesus baptized. John 4:2 indicates that Jesus baptized His disciples (apostles). The accounts of Jesus' baptism indicate that He was baptized in the River Jordan. John 3:23 states that John the Baptist baptized where there was much water. Acts 8:38 states that Philip and the eunch went down into the water to be baptized.
