Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Airlines / Airports

American Airlines (Extra Bags)

American Airlines
We booked our tickets via AA and they ticketed us on Air Tahiti Nui.
What surprised us was we were allowed 2 large bags each. The next year(2016)
I forgot and booked on Air Tahiti Nui and found we ended up paying extra for
our second bag. So check the prices and baggage allowances before you book.
