For Services and Resources in French Polynesia

The Tahiti Cruisers Guide is brought to you by Julien Desmont from Xperimental and Chuck Houlihan from Jacaranda. Starting as an idea based on the very successful Panama City Cruisers guide, it has evolved into 200+ pages of information on vendors and services throughout French Polynesia. In January 2018, we added GPS coordinates and links to Google Maps to assist in locating businesses.

Downloading the guide and GPS map coordinates will facilitate using the guide offline. The coordinates will work for either (best for Papeete) or Google Maps.

Especially thankful to John (SV Mary Ann II) and Steve (SV Ocean Star) for their huge effort in supplying a vast amount of information for the guide.

The guide is a community effort. Updates and new additions are greatly appreciated. If you find the guide useful or find something that needs updating please drop us a note at tahiticruisersguide (AT)

Office in Papeete is near the Market.
They have service to almost every island throughout FP.  Prices are modest.  If over sixty there is a discount card worth exploring. Flights are often booked up to a month ahead but changing or cancelling flights is a maximum of 1,000xpf so checking for cancelations is often fruitful. Luggage allowances are 7kg but a scuba c-card gets you a free extra 5kg and connections to international flight increases you allowance.  The per kg extra baggage rates are very modest but your luggage may be sent along later.      
                                    What we do is
1. Check the Air Tahiti flight for space.

2. Book our international ticket

3. Bring a copy of our international flight to Air Tahiti so they can mark your ticket as an international flight. You are then allowed 20kgs (2016 Jacaranda)
