We were supposed to stay in Pulau Macan for 1 night and go back to Jakarta on the second day. However, we felt like it still wasn't enough, plus Rod offered us an awesome deal to stay a night on their newly renovated boat that we couldn't resist. So we decided to stay another night. Luckily I remembered what my mom said (to always pack extra clothes for emergencies) and packed extra clothes for emergencies!
Now for the rest of our stay, we have a boat. A boat! This boat was for us to use to go to nearby places, and to stay overnight. Note: The boat has AC! So this is an option if you are one who cannot live without AC, though for me it was breezy and cold enough without.

Sleeping in a boat was actually quite comfortable, if you don't mind the water noises and the movements. That evening the wind was blowing more than usual, so it was a bit shaky. Regardless, Miss Kiki was able to sleep through the night until morning, and so did I. DH though, not so much.
Here's a view of the sunrise from our boat...
The staff offered to bring some food to our boat for breakfast but we preferred to go on dry land and joined everyone else. That was when DH spotted this beetle in the sink.
Happy with the boat ride experience the day before, I decided to do a snorkelling trip with the nice boat and invited several people on our trip. Everyone invited was up for it, and it was exciting! This time we went to a snorkelling spot near Matahari Island, and the water was clearer than the day prior. I am not sure if it was because of the location or if it was because the current was not as strong at that time.
Upon our return from the snorkelling trip, we still had the chance to snorkel around Pulau Macan before we cleaned up and packed up to go home. We even had the chance to get a tour around the island from Rod, so we finally saw the popular Sunset Hut, the special Ambassador Hut, and the Island Hut. They are actual open air huts, with beautiful view, and en suite bathrooms. Next time, I would want to stay in one of the huts, though they do come at a price.

And my dad picked us up!!!
That was the end of our trip to Pulau Macan. Until next time!
